Refreshing Our Collective Memory…History of Project/Work Done to Date

Five accident report categories targeted by team

for update and standardization

Accident Types – approved by NASBLA Membership (Sept 2012)

Contributing Factors – approvedby NASBLA Membership (Sep 2012)

Operation – final state review, then on to request for acceptance

Activity – final state review, then on to request for acceptance

Vessel Types/Sub-Types – final state review, then on to request for acceptance

Refreshing Our Collective Memory…History of Project/Work Done to Date

NASBLA Resolution 2012-3

In support of the Accident Reporting Terms and Definitions Project, the adoption of standardized terms and definitions by the U.S. Coast Guard, and actions to facilitate their application.

Refreshing Our Collective Memory…History of Project/Work Done to Date

NASBLA Resolution 2012-3

Three Key Elements

  • Support for the project and its intent

  • Formal request to the USCG to incorporate each list of terms and definitions into national use after each list is accepted by NASBLA Membership as a “final work product”

  • Recommendation that ERAC/USCG continue work needed to develop training and guidance for the states regarding the use of these terms and definitions

Refreshing Our Collective Memory…History of Project/Work Done to Date

Why update the report category terms & definitions?

More consistent report data + More complete report data + More accurate report data

GOES A LONG WAY TOWARD

More meaningful statistics and analysis

THAT, IF USED, SHOULD RESULT IN

More effective interventions… at State and National levels

What criteria guided the update and

standardization of report category options?

Clarity

Distinctiveness

Relevance

Afford better access to and analysis of data

Formatting to assist investigating officer’s work in recording relevant accident details


Moving ahead the focus today

Moving Ahead… The Focus Today

For each of the three lists

Operation, Activity, and Vessel Types/Sub-Types

  • Overview of structure – before and after latest revision

  • Review of key issues

  • Request for additional comments from BLAs

  • Q & A


Operation

Operation

Current Structure (BAR Version– State forms may vary)

  • Single list (some more “activity” than “operation”)

  • Choosing a “primary” option can be difficult if vessel is engaged in multiple activities


Operation1

Operation

Proposed Structure

  • More complete description of Operation of Vessel at time of accident

  • Structure guides the investigating officer to clearer decisions

  • All details to be included in online training modules


Operation2

Operation

Open comment period

resulted in revisions

to seven entries

More questions?

Terms/Definitions Document


Activity

Activity

Current Structure (BAR Version– State forms may vary)

  • Two components: General Activity (vessel) and Operator/Passenger Activity (person)

  • Unable to tie activities back to a specific person involved in the accident


Activity1

Activity

Proposed Structure

  • Expands options for vessel activity; limits capture of person activity to Operators and Victims

  • Allows for variations in way the states view the “Operator” role

  • All details (including guidance for implementing terms in hard copy and digital forms) to be included in online training modules


Activity2

Activity

Open comment period

resulted in revisions to entries

Current Structure (BAR Version– State forms may vary)


Vessel types vessel sub types1

Vessel Types/Vessel Sub-Types

Proposed Structure

  • Vessel Types set in CFR for implementation by January 2017

  • Vessel Sub-Types optional for states; Canoe, Kayak, Paddleboard highly encouraged under PADDLECRAFT Type

  • Vessel Sub-Types helpful as guidance in properly coding Vessel Types

  • All details to be included in online training modules


Vessel types vessel sub types2
