Lessons Learned: Leveraging Findings of Concern

One of the critical missions of the Coast Guard Marine Investigations Program is to publicly disseminate safety information from marine casualty investigations. One category of safety information, Findings of Concern (FoCs), consists of formal communications drafted as a part of the full investigation and review process, a different pace from the more urgent safety alerts released as soon as critical issues have been identified. FoCs are tools that can deliver important investigation findings with regard to internal company inspections, foreign flag vessel examinations, and third party organization oversight meetings. This safety information is a compelling story that may prevent a future accident outside the Coast Guard’s immediate ability to act, placing the onus of action on the operator, the owner, and the public, not the government.
