Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

The present research paper demonstrates an in-depth analysis of fishing vessel incidents occurring in UK territorial waters as registered in the MAIB database. The aim is to investigate the main factors and sub-factors in the incidents involving fishing vessels and the role of human element in them. In order to achieve this aim, fishing vessel incidents recorded in the UK MAIB database for the last 19 years are thoroughly examined. The objective through which the main aim is achieved includes the examination of the incident location, the various types of the incident as well as the identification of the factors which contribute to the above mentioned incidents. Furthermore, the present paper compares the outcomes of the analysis with current rules, guidelines and regulations from national and international bodies and moreover suggests measures to overcome the above mentioned concern.
