Abstract : This task is the culmination of multiple tasks directed at analyzing, restructuring, and enhancing the Coast Guard's Mishap Reporting Systems (MISREPS) to more capably support system safety engineering concepts such as hazard analysis and risk management. As part of the Loss Exposure and Risk Analysis Methodology (LERAM) project, the research into the methods which we employ to report, track, and analyze hazards has resulted in a series of low cost changes that should significantly alter the way data is viewed within the Coast Guard's Safety Program. In short, the traditional concepts of storing mishap data for historical archive purposes and seeking to identify trends in the data have been replaced by considerably more emphasis on causal factors leading to a mishap and the hazards responsible for the mishap.
