The paper presents a method that concerns the problem of determining a hazard level for various maritime areas based on selected risk factors. These factors reflect hazards that may happen on the route of a given ship and thus may potentially influence on reliability of supply and level of maritime risk for the ship. The results of the method can be helpful in a process of planning a ship’s voyage as well as when the transport service is already being realized in order to assess its reliability. The aim of the article is to propose hazards which may be taken into account while assessing the reliability and risk of maritime transport, and present how they can be included in the process of risk assessment in a form of hazard index. The paper presents results for the proposed method, showing how the hazard index is calculated for different maritime areas and its evaluation based on examples of ship’s routes.
