EMSA has developed a methodology to analyse data reported in the European Marine Casualty
Information Platform (EMCIP) with the view to detect potential safety issues.
Between July 2017 and December 2017, the Agency has conducted an analysis focused on fishing
vessels (F/V) to assess the workability and the effectiveness of such a methodology.
The safety assessment and the methods used and applied on board F/V were identified also as the main safety issues for occupational accidents.
This result depicts the outcome of data analysis from the reported occurrences in EMCIP and should be the starting point to a process of a more formal and detailed approach on each of the areas of concern.
