Abstract : The project was initiated in 1977 with the objective of recommending measures to reduce the number of casualties. The project tasks have been model and method development, analysis of about 3000 collisions and groundings, development of a manoeuvring simulator, near-miss analysis and evaluation of the idea of a data recorder for ships. The project has large support in the maritime society and a budget of 5.1 mill. NOK for the 4 year period ending this year. The recommended measures will vary for different ship sizes, and cover the areas of navigational aids, bridge systems, ship technology, personnel/competence and bridge procedures. Other important results are a casualty data system, a manoeuvring simulator concepts on accident investigation and basis for educational material. Some general observations on international work for safety at sea will be mentioned. (Author)
