ABSTRACT: The high rates of casualties in bulk carrier shipping have attracted a worldwide concern for safety and regulatory control from numerous governmental and private agencies. Between 2011 and 2020, a total number of 34 bulk carriers’ ships has been identify as total loos, resulting to the death of 128 seafarers. In this study, the statistically analysis of bulk carrier accident occurring from 2011 to 2020, in terms of their frequency, types of accident, locations of incidents and the factors that influence their occurrence has been reviewed. This study will contribute to decision-making and guidance on rational safety resource allocation that will help reduce the high casualty rates in bulk carrier.
