MSO/GROUP LA/LB PORT ACTIVITY RISK INDEX - AN ADAPTATION OF MSO JACKSONVILLE'S TOOL

This article describes the steps taken by Marine Safety Office (MSO)/Group Los Angeles/Long Beach (LA/LB) to modify the MSO Jacksonville's Risk Toolkit to fit their needs, rather than trying to create their own from scratch. Using Jacksonville's model as a guide, LA/LB developed a simple, systematic, repeatable, and transferable job aid to assist in classifying the average state of risk in their port for a given day. This tool, Port Activity Risk Index (PARI), is based on the evaluation of a number of factors influencing risk, such as cruise ship activity, forecasted winds, and arriving and departing vessels.
