Abstract / Description

Given the growing commercial practice of ship to ship transfers, the safety of these operations is becoming increasingly important. This article will highlight ways of preventing ship to ship transfer casualties and accidents. By looking at accident investigations, states can be better informed of lessons learned and be more ready safely to accommodate ship to ship transfers or respond to casualties/serious incidents. A regulatory and evaluative assessment of the UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) investigation of ship to ship transfer-related accidents is carried out, together with a further examination of how independent investigations ought to evolve.
