There is a 'collision warning bell' on most ships, this is incorperated in the radar in the form of a collision warning alarm. But the main thing is not the use of electrical equipment, but keeping a proper lookout to avoid collisions. And the latter is unfortunately not always the case, not even in the busy shipping routes like the ones on the North Sea.
