This paper presents a brief summary of the work conducted by the MSRC at Strathclyde University in which the effect of operational location on the estimation of a vessel’s survival probability has been investigated and new s-factor formulations proposed. Further work is presented in which updated accident wave statistics have been used in order to assess the impact of vessel specific data on the predicted survivability. A test case on a large container ship has been conducted in order to gauge the effect of the new s-factor formula on the Attained Subdivision Index and thus the vessel safety level with regards to collision damage.
