This paper highlights how the proactive analysis of Voyage Data Recorder information on a regular basis can provide an important tool for use in accident prevention and the reinforcement of a positive operational safety culture. The paper also depicts the analysis of tanker incidents during the period 1978 to 2011 which  indicates that navigational incidents involving collisions, contacts or groundings have consistently accounted for around half of all incidents and  how there is a  potential to learn lessons from other industries, particularly aviation, by improving the analysis and assessment of available data.
