Reporting as a Key Element of an Effective Near-Miss Management System in Shipping
Hasanspahić et al. (2020) – assessed the quality and effectiveness of near-miss management systems in the shipping industry. Results indicate that near-miss reporting is inadequate, and several barriers limit appropriate near-miss reporting. The difficulty of seafarers in identifying near-miss events was found to be one of the major barriers to near-miss reporting at sea. Based on this research, a conceptual model of a near-miss management system was developed, and measures that can be applied to overcome barriers and increase reporting are proposed.
