As maritime engineering products become more and more complex and the public concern regarding their safety increases, design for safety has attracted more and more attention in the marine and offshore industries. This paper reviews the current practices in risk assessment employed in the marine and offshore industries. The issues in risk assessment of large maritime engineering products are highlighted. A design for safety methodology is described together with the typical supporting risk assessment techniques. Several novel safety modelling and decision making techniques are outlined. Examples are used to demonstrate two novel risk modelling and decision making tools described with an aim of providing safety engineers with an opportunity to appreciate the novel approaches.
