Seafarers' accidents: does age, rank or experience matter?
Int Marit Health. 2001; 52(1-4):27-38.IM

Abstract

Studies on the work-related accidents among seafarers conducted in various countries during the 1980s and 1990s are reviewed, with particular reference to the age, rank and job experience of the victims. The lack of reliable and comparable statistical data on these accidents is a matter of concern. The author suggests that a better subdivision of accident causes and types would be necessary to monitor trends in rates, and to improve the legislation and work practices which could lead to reduction of these accident and fatality rates.
