Accident Investigation_1134

The course provides a fully comprehensive understanding of procedures involved in, and requirements for, maritime accident and hazardous occurrences reporting, investigation and analysis.

Course Objective

The participants will be able to improve their skills regarding accident investigation and analysis and their knowledge and understanding of the underlying contributing factors.

As a result of techniques and tools introduced, the participants will be able to conduct investigations and to carry out a thorough analysis of accidents and incidents with the objective to identify and eliminate the root causes.


Focus Points
  • Legal requirements and best practice guidance for the conduction of investigations
  • Techniques and tools for the systematic gathering of evidence including interviewing techniques
  • Reconstructing the accident event sequence and causal factors
  • Root cause analysis and follow-up activities to accident and incident investigations

Content

Effective accident and near-miss investigation and analysis are one option to reduce accidents and incidents in the shipping industry.

The necessary procedures, techniques and tools for effective accident and incident analysis are not necessarily part of the usual training profile in shipping companies. Many of these techniques and tools have been developed in other safety relevant industries, such as aviation, nuclear power or chemical industries.

In recent years, thorough accident/incident investigation and analysis has become more and more the focus in the shipping business with the objective to avoid damage to human life, the environment and property.

This course will introduce selected techniques and tools that will enable the designated investigator to improve the effectiveness and quality of the analysis of maritime accidents and hazardous occurrences.
