TOWARD A SCIENCE OF MARINE SAFETY
Attempting a science of marine safety imposes significant challenges in experimental design. Traditional experiments tend to be infeasible, but the objectives of those designs can be met with quasi-experimental methods. Such methods are applicable to safety effectiveness prediction, post-implementation assessment, and problem definition. With respect to collisions, the problem definition application reveals decreasing marginal returns available from device-oriented technology. Major safety improvements will require greater use of behavioral sciences, both in conjunction with engineering technology and independently.
