Abstract
Although the safety records for Ship to Ship (STS) transfer operations reflect to safe procedures, nevertheless it remains a complex operation that needs special consideration due to the adverse consequences of a potential accident. The aim of this paper is to apply fuzzy inference system as a novel approach for risk assessment for STS transfer operations. The advantages of the fuzzy approach are highlighted through the application of the Mamdani’s method for hypothetical accident scenarios.
