Safety Score

Moving cargo by sea increases your risk profile. Cargo owners and charterers need a transparency way to measure a vessel’s safety and operational performance for quick and easy vessel selection.

Use RightShip's Safety Score as part of your robust due diligence program. Benchmark vessels against global operating standards through an easy to understand Score out of five.

Safety score features

First step to vetting

Select which vessels to put forwards for vetting by using the Safety Score first as your initial review. Combining industry standard rules and statistical modelling, including expert review of vessels, the Safety Score helps you remove vessels outside of your risk profile from vessel lists.

Transparent score

See a clear breakdown of how each element contributes to the overall Safety Score of each vessel and select vessels based on areas of operational performance to fit your specific due diligence profile.


Benchmark a vessel against others of its type and see where each vessel is placed in its peer group and its impact on your risk profile.


When it comes to safety, quality and environmental performance benchmarking, the only comprehensive tool a ship operator has is RightShip. It is vital for us to measure and compare our results. Apart from benchmarking, the live feed of incidents on the tasks menu contains important lessons learnt from across the industry which are always included in our safety bulletins! We are proud to work with RightShip in an effort to improve the safety and environmental sustainability of the maritime industry.
