This 14th edition of the Shipping Occurrences Report will be focusing attention on inland shipping. Increasingly, the Dutch Safety Board is placing occurrences on Dutch inland waterways on its agenda. The Dutch Safety Board is not subject to any legal obligation to investigate inland shipping occurrences, but because these occurrences also reveal important opportunities for learning lessons and because both sectors can learn from each other, the Dutch Safety Board wishes to devote more attention the inland shipping sector. The focus is on the importance of awareness of the safety risks at the interface between the two sectors, with the aim of learning from one another, thereby increasing safety.
More about shipping occurences can be found in the Shipping Occurences Report Januari 2022 – July 2022.
