Safety has proved a strong driver for transferring learning across industrial sectors. Nowhere is this more evident than in safety-critical industries such as maritime. This chapter interrogates two dominant existing approaches to transfer and examines a number of case studies of tools and techniques that have been transferred across safety-critical industries. The challenges of these transfer projects are explored, together with some lessons learned. In addition a new, systematic approach to transfer is described, before the chapter concludes with a discussion of possible future directions for transferring learning to the maritime sector.
