Abstract

This paper details a promising solution to this issue by considering maximisation of the engagement of all objective sources by systematically integrating available data into a centralised system that could closely support risk assessment. Thankfully, the time to realise such configuration is appropriate. Mandatory code of conduct (originating from implementation of the ISM Code) in conjunction with technological advancement of computer hardware and related software has made accident and incident data available at organisational level. At the same time, use of advanced data processing techniques, typically data mining, is capable of revealing patterns, trends and tendencies through large amount of data, by utilising appropriate scientific and mathematical techniques.
