Time to get serious over reporting casualties

While very serious incidents at sea appear to be on the decline, according to data analysis by Lloyd's List, more needs to be done to get to a zero loss of life situation. One of the factors that improves safety is the filing of accident investigation reports by flag states to the International Maritime Organization so that trends may be spotted and action taken to avoid future tragedies. However, half of all mandatory reports still do not appear in the public database, which means lessons cannot be learned

Of the 753 very serious incidents that took place since 2014, 363 accident investigation reports exist, giving a compliance rate of 48%, according to the IMO's GISIS database
