    Abstract

    Maritime industry is still a human-centered industry in spite of latest technologies which has developed for reducing marine accidents. Human based errors cause marine accidents more than equipment based problems do. These accidents cause catastrophic consequences about human life and marine environment. Fatigue of navigation officers plays effective role on these human-based errors and marine accidents. There are several factors that effect navigation officers’ fatigue. In this study, relationship between fatigue of navigation officers and marine accidents will be examined; factors which are affecting fatigue of navigation officers determined with SWOT (strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis method and weighting of the factors determined by using AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) Method. With this analysis, strategic action plans were developed for minimizing fatigue related human errors on-board taking into account this SWOT factors and the weighting factors
