Project description

SAFEPEC -Innovative risk-based tools for ship safety inspection- project aims to promote proactive safety and develop a ‘unified risk-based framework’ built upon the analysis of historical data of casualties, near miss cases, deficiencies and non-conformities that are detected by various types of inspections. Another outcome of the project is a software prototype that enables the interoperability and coherent interpretation of those data sources; and can contribute to the early detection of failure, either in the ship structure or its equipment. Workshops and other engagement activities will be organised to collect the stakeholder views about the products developed during the project. Based on the feedback obtained along these events, a set of recommendations for proactive ship inspection policy will be elaborated.

A final SAFEPEC workshop will be held on 8 September 2017 in Hamburg. An outcome of the project is a software prototype that enables the interoperability and coherent interpretation of those data sources; and can contribute to the early detection of failure, either in the ship structure or its equipment. Workshops and other engagement activities aim to collect the stakeholder views about the products developed during the project. Based on the feedback obtained along these events, a set of recommendations for proactive ship inspection policy will be elaborated.
