Establishing Role of Human behaviour in Maritime Accidents Using Fuzzy Fault Tree Analysis

Ali Zaib* and Jingbo Yin

Abstract—Human errors have played a crucial role in the occurrence of accidents in maritime industry. Numerous methods have been applied and tested to pinpoint the cause of accidents but due to lack of available data it is often difficult to pinpoint the root cause. In this paper, fuzzy fault tree analysis (FFTA) is applied in order to determine probability of human errors as well as its contribution in the cause of accidents. For that purpose, a real-life accident of M/T Zarga case is analyzed which happened while docking of ship in 2015 on South Hook Terminal, Wales, and United Kingdom which caused a serious injury to one of the crew members.

Index Terms—Maritime Transportation, risk analysis, accidental model, Human errors, fuzzy fault tree analysis (FFTA)
