Abstract This report presents the findings of an expert group project aimed at lowering the number of accidents in small merchant shipping enterprises through the implementation of occupational safety and health management systems. The findings lead to four recommendations: adoption of a safety management system (SEAHS); job description of the safety officer; training of the crews and labour inspectors in occupational safety and health; compilation of a technical occupational safety and health guide for the merchant shipping sector.
