Prevention of CRG casualties is an important issue, especially because of the number of CRG casualties has increased almost twice during recent years. For the great majority of all CRG casualties human factor responsible, and the increasing number of these casualties might be attributed to poorer qualifications of ship masters who have not enough experience in handling very large ships put into operation presently. Risk analysis is a modern method for assessment of safety level of technical systems. This tool may be the used to investigate causes of casualties and to find out most effective prevention measures. Risk analysis is widely used in many areas; in case of marine technology it is used routinely in off-shore technology. The author investigates possibilities to apply risk analysis in the area of ship handling with the focus on human factor. This is preliminary study where possible methodology for hazards identification and risk assessment in respect of CRG casualties are investigated and risk control options are suggested. Various aspects of the influence of human factor in collision avoidance are listed and in particular the effect of training is stressed.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Risk Analysis, Human Factor, CRG Casualties, Ship Handling Research and Training Centre at Ilawa, Poland, Collision Avoidance, Collisions-Ramming-Groundings (CRG), Safe Manoeuvres, Human and Organization Errors (HOE)} }
