A material package for teachers and students: Different aspects of maritime safety have been the central themes of Bridge conferences held at the faculty of Maritime Management at Satakunta University of Applied Sciences in Rauma. The special theme for the conference held in June 2011 was “Safe Return to Port” aka SRTP, for which the International Maritime Organisation IMO has set specified SOLAS regulations. The regulations particularly concern passenger ships and the aim was the prevention of accidents as efficiently as possible and the design of ship structures to support evacuation possibilities, so that the people onboard can remain on the ship in the event of accident until the ship has reached the dock. Prevention and preparation concern severe accidents, such as water entering the ship or onboard fires. The share of human factor in accidents became clear from the presentations of several speakers at the conference, while the topic was already familiar from previous conferences. Critical factors and risk accumulation were discussed from various perspectives.
