AN ANALYSIS OF MARITIME TRANSPORTATION RISK FACTORS Harilaos N. Psaraftis, George Panagakos, Nicholas Desypris, Nicholas Ventikos Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering National Technical University of Athens, Greece ABSTRACT This paper presents an analysis on the factors that are. approaches which promote safety during transport. The IAEA’s role in dangerous goods transport safety In March , the ECOSOC Committee of Experts recognized the necessity of co-ordination with the IAEA in the drafting of any recommendations relating to the transport of radioactive material. Yet, the maritime casualty rate is still high. Why? Why is it, with all these improvements, we have not significantly reduced the risk of accidents? It is because ship structure and system reliability are a relatively small part of the safety equation. The maritime system is a people system, and human errors figure prominently in casualty File Size: KB.

Introduction. Risk analysis methods for maritime transportation have received a growing interest in recent years, even to the extent that international organizations have provided recommendations on the use of specific risk analysis and management tools.In parallel, there is a recent focus on foundational issues in scientific environments concerned with risk analysis, with calls for Cited by: Accidents and Incidents Involving the Transport of Radioactive Materials in the UK - Review J S Hughes and M P Harvey ABSTRACT During there were 27 accidents and incidents, involving the transport of radioactive materials from, to, or within the UK, and this report includes descriptions of File Size: KB.

The radiological consequences of an accident involving transported SNF materials are likely to be small as transport containers for radioactive and nuclear material are designed to withstand physical damage from accidents involving fire, impacts and submersion.

However, understanding the potential impacts of a serious accident during marine. The book covers all aspects of maritime risk and safety from engineering and operational perspectives, as well as regulatory and health and safety requirements.

This TECDOC represents the final outcome of the work done for this CRP by ten countries, which was co-ordinated by the IAEA in a number of meetings which were spread over five years.

During there were 20 accidents and incidents, involving the transport of radioactive materials from, to, or within the UK and this report includes descriptions of each event. None of these reported events involved significant radiological consequences.

Safety in the transport of radioactive material is ensured by enclosing the material, when necessary, in packaging which prevents its dispersal and which absorbs to any adequate extent any radiation emitted by the material.

Transport workers, the general public and the environment are thus protected against the harmful effects of the. Hence, the course will give the theoretical and practical basis for risk based safety improvement of maritime transport systems, including choice of appropriate methods to perform accident and risk analyses to assess required and/or cost-effective risk control measures.

The specific intended learning outcomes in knowledge and skills are. During there were 27 accidents and incidents, involving the transport of radioactive materials from, to, or within the UK. The number of events in earlier years were: 16 in millions of packages of radioactive material have been transported but only about reportable accidents or incidents in all modes of transportation have occurred.

Only 30% of these involved any release of contents or increased radiation levels and none resulted in serious injury or death attributable to exposure to radiation.
