System Simulations for Safety
Paper in proceedings, 2010

Changes in the working environment can affect safety, especially in time-critical situations where wrong decisions can have decisive impact on man, environment and property. Organizational changes, the introduction of new technology and new legislation are example of various factors that affect the working environment. In this paper we present an approach to explore safety issues in maritime working environments by using complex simulation to create realistic scenarios and data collection to build the basis for exploration. In this paper we focus on the validity of the method and compare findings with actual accidents known risks. We also give some examples of found safety aspects that can be of interest for further analysis in the maritime domain.
