Abstract (Swedish)
This master’s thesis aims to investigate how pilotage contributes to maritime safety and if its criteria can be more risk-based in Sweden. The theory of Resilience Engineering was applied to maritime safety which has extended the concept further. Several aspects of how pilots contribute to maritime safety were identified within the literature and empirical studies. These aspects were the pilots' expertise, experience and local knowledge, the ability to make risk assessments, local language skills, advisory role and that the pilot acts as a relief resource. When these factors were studied on the basis of Resilience Engineering it gave another dimension to how pilots contribute to maritime safety. Based on this, pilots contribute to maritime... (More)
This master’s thesis aims to investigate how pilotage contributes to maritime safety and if its criteria can be more risk-based in Sweden. The theory of Resilience Engineering was applied to maritime safety which has extended the concept further. Several aspects of how pilots contribute to maritime safety were identified within the literature and empirical studies. These aspects were the pilots' expertise, experience and local knowledge, the ability to make risk assessments, local language skills, advisory role and that the pilot acts as a relief resource. When these factors were studied on the basis of Resilience Engineering it gave another dimension to how pilots contribute to maritime safety. Based on this, pilots contribute to maritime safety by adapting the current system to new conditions caused by a changing world. Hence, the pilot must be able to be flexible and adaptive to maintain control over the system. Regarding risk based criteria for pilotage, the current criteria were considered reasonable and there was no apparent need for more risk based criteria to be identified within this thesis. However, a number of risk based criteria were identified which could be referred to the ship, cargo, crew and the skipper. This matter could be investigated further by someone with nautical skills and the criteria identified in this thesis could serve as a starting point. (Less)
