The use of risk analysis methods as decision support tools is getting more and more acceptance to analyze, recover or mitigate potential risks in engineering applications. Integrated risk analysis techniques lead to obtain more reliable and realistic solutions. In this paper, 'Fuzzy Based Risk Assessment' has been used and systematically incorporated in terms of a set of plausible model scenarios leading to cargo vessel accidents at the coasts and open seas of Turkey.
