Man overboard : An analysis of accidents involving rescue boats (English)
Abstract [sv]

Fartygets beredskapsbåt är en viktig del i sjöräddningsarbetet för att till exempel rädda en nödställd person ur vattnet, men dessvärre sker olyckor i samband med användandet av denna. Syftet med detta arbete var att undersöka varför olyckor med beredskapsbåtar inträffar, genom att analysera haverirapporter om beredskapsbåtsolyckor ombord på fartyg med anknytning till Europa. 13 rapporter analyserades med hjälp av HFACS-MA-modellen. Metoden kategoriserar orsaker till olyckor och har givit en bild av vilka faktorer som varit de mest frekvent bidragande i de undersökta olycksfallen. Resultatet visade att fel och brister i konstruktionen (av till exempel dävert, krok och säkerhetsbrytare), otillräcklig eller obefintlig dokumentation inom organisationen (checklistor, manualer och instruktioner) och den fysiska arbetsplatsen (hur arbetsplatsen var utformad) var de främsta orsakerna till att olyckor med beredskapsbåtar inträffade. Av resultatet framgick även att kategorin förutsättningar, som till exempel yttre miljö och kommunikation, var en stor bidragande faktor.

Abstract [en]

The ship's rescue boat is an important part of search and rescue, for example to rescue a person in distress from the water, but unfortunately accidents happen in conjunction with the use of the boat. The purpose of this essay was to investigate why accidents with rescue boats occur by analyzing accident reports involving rescue boat accidents on ships with a connection to Europe. 13 reports were analyzed with the HFACS-MA model. The method categorizes the causes of accidents and has provided a picture of the factors that have been most contributory in the investigated accidents. The result showed that deficiencies in the design (for example davit, hook and breaker), insufficient or nonexistent documentation within the organization (checklists, manuals and instructions) and the function of the physical workplace, were the main reasons for why accidents involving rescue boats occur. The result also showed that the category preconditions, such as the external environment and communication, was a major contributing factor.
