Safety Score

The RightShip Safety Score is a new way to benchmark safety.

The Safety Score lifts maritime industry safety standards by focusing on a vessel's operational history over the last five years. It incorporates various maritime datasets and expert reviews into one easy to understand score, benchmarking each vessel against the world fleet for the full view on global maritime safety. The output is a score out of five, where a vessel which has achieved a five out of five score indicates best practice attention to safety.

Designed to be explainable and transparent, the Safety Score is made up of six sub-scores, Safety Score rules and paths to resolution are clearly displayed in the Platform. All of RightShip’s due dilligence customers can see a vessel’s full safety history as well as the effects of each sub-score or rule on the overall result. Members can also benchmark each vessel against its peers for the complete view on global maritime safety. Through enhanced reporting, we aim to lift safety standards and highlight best practice processes.

Developed over two years of industry collaboration, RightShip’s Safety Score is the next step towards zero-incident seas. It is intended to help our risk assessment customers gain an initial perspective on the operational performance of a vessel as an initial step in comprehensive due diligence. This clear and consistent benchmark of historic safety performance provides an initial perspective on the operational performance of a potential vessel as part of a comprehensive due diligence process. Combined with our maritime expertise, industry leading database and robust vetting program, you'll receive a holistic picture of risk and suitability.

First step to vetting

The Safety Score is calculated through a combination of industry standard rules and statistical modelling, including expert review of vessels. We recommend our due diligence customers use the Safety Score as an initial indicator when considering which vessels to put forward for vetting, saving time in the selection process.
