Abstract

New regulations have called for the provision of onboard safety centres for all passenger ships built after July 2010. Various factors are pushing the industry towards a more comprehensive treatment of ship safety including the increasing size, speed and capacities of vessels. Risk-based approaches offer a rational, explicit and consistent approach to design and decision support in design and operational phases, and yet the development of a formal framework presents serious challenges due to the diversity and quantity of the supporting data and tools. In this paper, various factors driving ship safety to the fore are presented. Following this, a variety of first principles-based tools are outlined that can be used in combination as part of an integrated crisis management system.
