MARITIME SAFETY IN THE NETHERLANDS: A REVIEW OF PROCEDURES AND TOOLS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW METHODS

Various safety plans are discussed that are being implemented in the Netherlands or that are planned for implementation in the near future. They concern the North Sea and the Port of Rotterdam, as well as a more general, integrated approach to safety and maritime transport. The paper is divided into three parts. The first deals with safety and efficiency in the North Sea. It touches upon many aspects, discussing the main objectives of the Netherlands' maritime policy and their effects upon navigational safety, involving navigational information, ship routing in relation to the offshore mining industry, aids to navigation, recreational and fishing vessels, etc. Part 2 deals with safety in the approach channel to the Port of Rotterdam. A general approach to safety assessment in maritime transport is given in Part 3, where the basic principles of the project are discussed.
