||A socio-technical approach of risk management applied to collisions involving fishing vessels
||Aug. 2006, Vol.44, No.7, p.599-619. Illus. 26 ref.
||In this study, a case-by-case analysis of collisions at sea involving fishing vessels resulted in the identification of two basic causes: undetected signals and wrong diagnoses. It also allowed definition of the real operating space of the functional units (fishing vessels) most often involved in collisions, as well as the permeable areas of the safety barriers, through which operations migrate toward unsafe zones. As far as the collision risk is concerned, functional units work in a borderline area, close to the limits of safe behaviour. To prevent accidents, it is necessary to reinforce these safety barriers, thus limiting the migration factor and bringing the functional units back into an area where the factors of safety, performance and individual profitability are all acceptable.
