Abstract This report analyses the causes of the 645 accidents that occurred between 1990 and 1999 on board ships registered in Germany. A list of individual performance qualities required of naval officers in order that they master critical hazardous situations was developed based on a "duties and requirements" analysis. These qualities could be used as selection criteria for the officers. It was also found that multinational crews present a high managerial workload on the ships' officers. Observations of technical and administrative factors enabled the highlighting of hazards to shipping, and form the starting point of a system aimed at ensuring ships safety. Detailed summary in English and French.
