Abstract: Abstract:Marine incidents usually bring casualties in the navigation, and consequently danger peoples’ life and property, contaminate the ocean environment, and encumber ports’ operation. Since 1997, the International Maritime Organization has advocated investigating and analyzing marine incidents in order to find the cause-effect relationship for benefiting authorities in making marine policies and regulations for navigation safety and ocean environment protection. Many researchers have studied on issues of marine casualties in different flags, seamen fatalities, and ferries safety. However, little research has been devoted to the port security, especially the field of navigation safety within a country’s territorial waters. Past records showed that marine incidents have occurred mostly on and near the territorial waters of ports. Hence, the navigation safety analysis of territorial waters of ports is essential to reduce marine casualties. The main purpose of this paper is to investigate the present navigation safety in Taiwanese territorial waters and make suggestions to strengthen the navigation safety of ports. In this paper, we analyze the marine incident records of each Taiwan’s commercial port from 1992 to 2003, and identify six indicators that can reveal the safety of waters. The Grey Relationship Analysis methodology is also applied to rank the navigation safety orders of each commercial port; we find that the navigation safety of Port Hualien and Port Taichung are better than that of Port Keelung and Port Kaohsiung. Finally, through thoroughly reviewing incident reports and interviewing with the managers of port authorities and marine specialists, we reveal some apprehensions encountered by Taiwan’s commercial ports, and provide some suggestions to strengthen the navigation safety of ports.
