Normally, the risks associated offshore would include, in the first turn, colliding with the offshore structure, and this risk is deservedly considered a dominating one and requiring closest attention. The main subject of this paper originates in a real need for the non-stop update and continuous review of the models developed for the assessment of this risk. The collision risk is normally governed by those actions that are taken by the crew of the vessel.
These actions depend on the different factors, among which there are both human and organizational ones, all quite difficult to measure. That is why the main emphasis has been made on the organization on board vessel, with the objective to provide a proper identification and assessment of the causes as well as the major underlying factors contributing to the collision of the vessel with the offshore installation.
To do this, the hierarchical model is applied, which implies the assessment of the covered components by the experts through interviews. The results gathered as a result of those interviews, are subsequently combined with the data obtained from the review of the relevant publications and only then the contributing factors are determined.
