Maritime safety research program (MarSafe)

MarSafe is a research program focuses on risk and safety within the maritime industry and investigates organizational and operational aspects of how risk and safety is managed.

The MarSafe research group is crossdisciplinary and the members have backgrounds within nautical science, engineering, law, safety science, and social sciences including anthropology and psychology.

Our research is human-centred and system-oriented. We regard the human as the most important part of the system. We perform most of our research in the field and in close collaboration with the industry.
