Accident Investigation and Organisational Learning (15 Credit PDU)

About this course

This unit develops the principle that organisations need to learn from accident and near miss situations in order to reduce the likelihood of recurrence.

As such, the unit aims to encourage the student to reflect critically upon the theoretical and practical aspects of how accidents are investigated and how organisations engage with and respond to the results of these investigations in a formal way.

This unit is one of the four comprising the Maritime Safety Management optional strand within the MSc Shipping Operations.
