75% of accidents in the industry are linked to Maritime Human Errors. We Noticed the gap in the standardised system for Human Reliability Analysis. HiLo has pioneered a quantitative predictive model to address and analyse the role human beings play in maritime accidents.

HiLo has built the first-ever Maritime Human Reliability Model to improve safety in the maritime industry. The model identifies the part human error plays in high impact, sometimes fatal accidents. The model identifies environmental and operational factors which increase the likelihood of human error, giving shipping managers the best chance of making necessary changes before incidents occur. This is a unique invention that had never been seen before in the maritime industry. HiLo’s advanced technology system made it possible to calculate and predict human errors based on near misses, previous accidents and fatalities. 

What is the HiLo Human Reliability Model?

  • Innovative Model: Human Reliability Model is the maritime industry’s first-ever quantitative method to measure human reliability. This model will predict incidents that can be caused by Human Errors and identify the environmental factors which drive human errors.
  • Industry-wide Datasets: HiLo’s client base of over 50 shipping companies allows the access of the deepest datasets. The system analyses full data sets from HiLo customers to get the deepest, most accurate view into maritime safety. Not only does this open the gate to next-generation analysis into human reliability but also gives new insights into the circumstances which drive human error. 


Human Reliability Model- How the Process Works

Collection of Data: Shipping companies share full safety data sets as part of their subscription to HiLo. They also share data specific to human reliability. This data includes crew matrix, length of the tour, number of port visits, seafarer’s retention and many more elements. HiLo combines expert statistical modelling with psychological research to create the world’s most accurate maritime human reliability model.

Scrutinization of Data: The data that has been collected is now processed through HiLo’s high-tech system. The data is separated into sections for accurate statistical analysis. This allows the human error to be viewed in a quantitative method for the first time in the industry. Based on the advanced analysis, companies can work to find solutions for high-risk human reliability factors.

Valuable Risk Insights: After thorough analysis, the system identifies both- the impact of human error on maritime risks and the factors which drive these errors. The analysis report provides risk insights for shipping companies to aid their decision making for the improvement of human reliability in the industry.
