Risk Assessment of Fishing Vessels



The work described in this paper is concerned with the systematic analysis of the hazards of fishing vessels. Statistical data is reviewed and analysed and fault tree analysis is applied to find the relative importance of each component with respect to system reliability. In this analysis, the loss of vessel is chosen as the top event, then branching out to the basic events such as human error, structural failure, fish on deck etc. This method is considered an essential approach for providing a much better basis for safety decision making.
Finally, in order to reduce the accidents to vessels and crew, some suggestions are made to reduce the probability of human error to improve the stability and safety of vessels.
Key Words: Fishing Vessels, Risk Assessment, Fault Tree, Human Error
