EU funded SEAHORSE project is developing a novel approach to improve maritime SOPs. SEAHORSE Project’s ‘Smart Procedures Concept’ aims to develop a system to capture the behavioural adaptations that crew have developed in order to cope with operational demands and challenges. Initially, a detailed survey was conducted worldwide to capture seafarer’s safety attitudes as well as the common workarounds. Then, these collected workarounds will be categorised through conducting risk and benefit analysis. Accordingly, safe workarounds will be approved as Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), on the other hand, measures will be proposed to prevent reoccurrence of unsafe workarounds. This paper will present the proposed approach to deal with maritime workarounds and report the preliminary results of the analysis.
