Maritime Accident and Incident Investigation covers a wide range of topics relating to maritime-orientated organisational hazards and risks, as well as root cause analyses and techniques for analysing evidence. Its approach to maritime casualty and incident investigation caters to the unique needs of the maritime industry and covers the human element, machinery and engineering, and structural and security concerns.
The book is divided into four parts, which respectively introduce the concepts and theories of organisational risks and hazards; provide a framework structure for planning, initiating, performing, and closing out maritime casualty and incident investigations; provide an overview of the main forms of analyses; and offer a toolkit of forms and documents for preparing and carrying out incident investigations.
- Focuses on basic principles independent of particular software or protocols, allowing customisation to the reader's own management system, Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) programmes, or related initiatives
- Supports the reader in applying class-related activities such as the provisions of the ISM Code and the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code
The book is ideal for trainees, advanced students, and junior maritime professionals involved in the investigation of maritime accidents and incidents. Also available as online Support Material is a full MaRCIIF Toolkit, containing several resources, such as checklists, forms, and guidelines, useful in the execution of maritime incident investigations.
