Safety excellence : a management approach to reducing accidents at sea

Subtitle: Updated figures for 2007 show that the losses from navigational accidents within the shipping industry are continuing to increase. This trend is also confirmed by the insurance industry. Premiums may increase by as much as 30 per cent in 2008. In the bulker segment, the trend last year was towards higher losses from collisions, groundings and contact accidents. The increased frequency of navigational accidents makes this development even more important. However, it is possible to improve safety, despite the challenges the industry is facing. DNV's Safety Excellence (SafeX) programme has been developed together with leading shipping companies to combat this challenge.
