AbstractThe International Maritime Organization Marine Safety Committee adopted Guidelines for Formal Safety Assessment as a means to make sound decisions with respect to the marine and shipping industries. The methodology is aimed at enhancing maritime safety, protection of life, health and environment through risk analysis and hazard identification. As part of an ongoing research project regarding the Formal Safety Assessment methodology and process, researchers at IOT and MUN are working together to complete a case study on 65ft Newfoundland Small Fishing Boat Stability using the FSA technique to verify if FSA is a methodology which is effective and useful to Transport Canada. The report will describe the FSA process in brief, identifying and explaining the five step FSA process and will discuss the FSA workshop held at the Institute for Ocean Technology in March 2006. The report will then focus on hazards and possibly risk control options for the 65ft Newfoundland Small Fishing Boat Stability problem.
