Abstract [en]

Risk communication in a modern maritime environment is unmistakably important but how does it fare against today’s science? This study focuses on a small part of risk communication, namely the differences in using one mean of communication as opposed to multiple means of communication. What positive and negative sides are involved in exchanging information through only one mean of communication as opposed to giving and receiving the information through many?  The method is a literature study and the material ten accident reports made by administrative authorities. The reports have been analyzed and compared to modern subject science literature. The result of the study favor multiple means of communication such as public address systems, signs, general alarm and through the crew. The different ways create a redundancy and succeeds better at reaching a diversity of people. The negative sides, including confusion caused by too much or deviating information, appears to historically have been exaggerated. This is probably due to a false belief that man behaves irrationally in a state of crisis. The risk communication of the future is as such thick in information and comes through multiple means of communication.
