Tanker Accident Database
Identifying best practice
through lessons learned
The Tanker Accident Database provides an anonymous reporting tool for use by vessel owners and technical managers to document measurable accident data.
The aim of the Database is to collate a stock of anonymous tanker accident details which, over time, will allow for root cause analysis of tanker accidents, preventing the occurrence of repeat accidents and leading to further advances in maritime best practice and safety.
Accident data is collected specifically for anonymous trending, benchmarking and root cause analysis.
To ensure the total anonymity of each accident data provider, the Data Collection and Analysis areas will be completely separated, each with its own data entry system, hosted in a different country to the other.
The main aim of the Tanker Accident Database is to learn from accidents that have occurred, helping to prevent the occurrence of repeat accidents.
