Study water transport accident statistics for use in Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA)
This datasheet provides information on water transport accident statistics for use in Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA). The data sheet includes guidelines for the use of recommended data and a review of the sources of the data. The data in this sheet are intended for three main uses: • Assessing the risk of personnel on board vessels; • Assessing the frequencies of vessel/ship accidents; • Assessing the frequencies of oil spills. Relevant personnel are crew boat passengers being transported to offshore facilities and crew who work on vessels. The main focus in terms of vessel types is on supply vessels, stand-by vessels (now commonly known within the UK as Emergency Response & Rescue Vessels (ERRV)), crew vessels, anchor handling vessels, diving support vessels and tankers. Drilling rigs, flotels, and production and storage vessels are not included.
