||Hazardous occupations in Great Britain
||17 Aug. 2002, Vol.360, No.9332, p.543-544. Illus. 5 ref.
||The causes of all deaths in the British merchant marine (507) and trawler fishing (454) industries during the period 1976-1995 were compared with those for all other occupations (except civil aviation) (9543). Fishermen were 52.4 times more likely to have a fatal accident at work than British workers in general; for seafarers the factor was 26.2. Although a downward trend has been identified in these occupations, they remain much more hazardous than the average, and a reduction in unsafe working practices at sea is strongly recommended.
