Risk Management in Sea Ports – Insights and Trends

The Article was built on the material, insights and findings of the international project HAZARD – MITIGATING THE EFFECTS OF EMERGENCIES IN THE BALTIC SEA REGION PORTS 2016–2019. The Project was spurred on the fact that ports, terminals and storage facilities are often located close to residential areas, thus potentially exposing a large number of people to the consequences of accidents. The HAZARD project deals with these concerns by bringing together rescue services, other authorities, logistics operators and established knowledge partners. HAZARD project aims at mitigating the effects of emergencies in major seaports in the Baltic Sea Region. Hazard’s project activities involved a range of analytical activities related to security and risk management. It was analyzed the possibility of hazardous situations, incidents and accidents caused by handling and other work in the ports. Accidents and incidents are associated with an explosion, fire, and material spill hazard. Great attention was paid to risk management and development of preventive measures, as well as improvement of interinstitutional cooperation measures. The research and results of the project are presented in this article.
