Marine incident data helping to improve maritime safety
We have released the annual report of marine incidents reported from regulated Australian and foreign flagged vessels in Australian waters. It includes an analysis of reported marine incidents during 2016 to 2019, with a focus on 2019 data.
Incidents can result in loss of life, loss of income and loss of reputation. So when an incident occurs we need to report, consider, learn and respond by taking the right actions to improve safety outcomes.
Through the analyses of trends, marine incident reporting helps inform future approaches to managing safety. The information from the report is used to support and implement safety .
