In this paper we present the first application of connectionism assessment of human reliability (CAHR) on maritime accident data. In conjunction with root cause analysis, represented by accident reports, the CAHR method investigates the work context from a holistic point of view. To date, by IMO predominantly first generation methods, such as THERP, are recommended, for instance, to be applied in the context of the Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) process for rule development. It can be argued that validation of human reliability data used in these methods would be desirable, with respect to the maritime work operating environment. In the nuclear domain in Germany, the long term application of the CAHR method in the course of incident analysis made it possible to validate and gradually generate human reliability data. This paper closes by defining the requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to apply the method in the maritime domain.
