Abstract An analysis was carried out of the hazards caused by terrorism, high seas piracy, the needs of crews facing these dangers and the psychological and behavioural processes resulting from fear. It enabled conclusions to be drawn on the way of coping with these situations. These formed the basis for the development of an educational and training programme for possible integration into an occupational safety management system according to the ISPS code. An additional computer-assisted programme was also developed using basic knowledge concerning behaviour during exceptionally dangerous situations arising from terrorism or piracy.
