The thematic study of this Shipping Occurrences Report is about risk management on board. Many incidents arise from an incorrect or incomplete understanding of risks. The thought is often that an action can still be done or the ship will fit, but in practice that does not appear to be the case. By being more aware of risks and making an informed assessment, safety on board of shipscan significantly improve. Chris van Dam, chairperson: ‘If we are more risk aware, the chances of an incident will be much smaller’.

The Dutch Safety Board sees that incidents often occur due to a limited understanding of risks. Making a good risk assessment is crucial to prevent incidents.  The Dutch Safety Board urges everyone to make well informed decisions.

More information can be found in the Shipping Occurrences Report July – December 2023.
