Abstract
This report briefly reviews ship stability and capsize issues, risk assessment, and Human Factors issues related to risk of capsize during design and operation of warships. A generic approach to Human Reliability Analysis (based on Kirwan 1994) is described in some detail. Based on this approach, a four part two year plan is proposed to establish and apply a Human Reliability Analysis approach to estimate Human Factors risks related to warship capsize and management of stability. This work was conducted under Standing offer W7711-017747/001/TOR, Call-up 7747-14 with DRDC-Toronto and submitted in July 2003.
