Several initiatives are underway in the maritime industry with a view to improving levels of safety in all aspects of ship design and operation. A common theme is the proposed adoption of structured safety management systems and associated techniques as already applied to other high risk industries. This paper describes the goals of a system for managing safety in the design phase of a ships life, the stage at which it is most cost effective to provide safety features. Examples of means of achieving those goals have been provided and some of the interfaces with operational safety management have been highlighted.
