Title Offshore safety case approach and formal safety assessment of ships
Bibliographic information 2002, Vol.33, No.1, p.81-115. Illus. 37 ref.
Abstract To maximize marine and offshore safety, risk modelling and decision-making tools need to be developed and applied in a practical environment. This paper describes both the offshore safety case approach and the formal safety assessment of ships with particular reference to the design aspects. Current practices and the latest developments in safety assessment in both the marine and offshore industries are described. The relationship between the offshore safety case approach and formal ship safety assessment is described and discussed. Three examples are used to demonstrate the two approaches and recommendations are made with respect to further work required.
