The 2019 annual report presents an analysis of marine incidents including fatalities reported to AMSA. It provides an insight into reported marine incident data between 2016 and 2019 in Australian waters. The report aims to provide an overview of current trends over the last 4 years in maritime safety.
Marine incident reporting helps inform proactive and reactive approaches to managing safety. The information from these marine incident reports is used reactively by implementing control measures on a case-by-case basis, and proactively by analysing trends and implementing more systemic measures.
