The use of advanced methods has been increasing day
by day in the maritime sector, which is one of the sectors least
affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is aimed to minimize
accidents, especially by using advanced methods in the investigation
of marine accidents. This research aimed to conduct an exploratory
statistical analysis of particular ship accidents in the Transport Safety
Investigation Center of Turkey database. 46 ship accidents, which
occurred between 2010-2018, have been selected from the database.
In addition to the availability of a reliable and comprehensive
database, taking advantage of the robust statistical models for
investigation is critical to improving the safety of ships. Thus,
descriptive analysis has been used in the research to identify causes
and conditional factors related to different types of ship accidents.
The research outcomes underline the fact that environmental factors
and day and night ratio have great influence on ship safety.
