The objective of embedding technology on board ships, to improve safety, is not fully accomplished. The paper studies marine accidents caused by human error resulting from improper human-technology interaction. The aim of the paper is to propose measures to prevent reoccurrence of such accidents. This study analyses the marine accident reports issued by Marine Accidents Investigation Branch covering the period from 2012 to 2014. The factors that caused these accidents are examined and categorised. Analysis shows that 31% of the marine accidents are associated with technology. Poorly designed and/or inadequately trained-for ship systems, as well as changes in job performance requirements and attitudes towards practices and procedures influenced by technology defeated a safety system, contributed to the occurrence of a human error and lead to accidents. The user-centred design and improvements in training and organisation of the ship’s crew are proposed as preventive measures. This study underpins the importance of effective teamwork in the effort to improve safety on board ships.
