Bibliographic information 2005, Vol.56, No.1/4, p.67-77. 10 ref.
Abstract A questionnaire survey was conducted in Antwerp, Belgium in 2002-2004 on factors influencing the occurrence of work-related accidents and injuries among maritime pilots. 130 questionnaires were collected and analysed (response rate 37.6%). The accidents reported in the questionnaire occurred between 1980 and 2005, most of them (70.7%) during the previous 10 years. The effects of various factors were considered, including causes of accidents, their time and site, type of injury, human factors, transfer to ships, use of safety equipment, state of the sea and visibility. The results obtained are summarized in three tables and compared with data from the literature.
