Abstract
In this report, a hazard identification in winter navigation has been performed in order to detect, determine, list and categorize different relevant hazards threatening the safety performance and development of the winter navigation operations. The analysis presented in this report aims to gather all available information from different sources in order to detect hazards for the practice of winter navigation, having a particular consideration of winter navigation hazards of oil tankers operation and/or vessels with similar characteristics. The report introduces the implemented framework to detect the relevant hazards of winter navigation and describes in details the three utilized sources to detect those hazards: hazard identification workshops with winter navigation experts, accident cases analysis, and analysis of accident statistics of 5 winters. Results obtained are presented after the performed collection and data analysis. Finally, discussion and conclusions are drawn.
