||Safety is a vital factor in the running of a country's fishing sector. However, the planning of the necessary resources and their adequate distribution according to the sector's needs are only possible if detailed information is available on the distribution in the frequency of accidents within the sector. In this context, the aim of this study was two-fold: firstly, to formalise a methodology for the fishing sector of a country which allows the differences in the frequency of accidents to be analysed; and secondly, to apply this methodology to the Spanish fishing fleet for the period 1994-2002. Using the methodology, indices were built by regions and by types of vessel for two variables: fishermen and vessels. Findings are discussed.
