Safety barriers for risk management of fishing vessels off the coasts and in open seas of Turkey

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Maritime accidents often arise from the interactions among technical, organizational and human failures.To protect marine systems or structures from the negative consequences of failures, or prevent, control, or mitigate undesired events or accidents, safety barriers are employed. Barrier systems can be classified according to their nature such as passive or active barrier systems. The aim of the study is to focus on the integration of safety barriers on maintenance activities on fishing vessels off the coasts and in open seas of Turkey. This paper examines how safety barriers can be modelled in risk analyses and management, and to which level of detail this can be achieved for fishing vessels. To make the risk management study, the socio-technical system in which the accidents occur is analyzed and the interaction of technical and human failures investigated off the coasts and in open seas of Turkey.
