Title Damage analysis and work activity analysis to determine psychic demands in skippers of inland waterway vessels
Original title Havarie- und Arbeitstätigkeitsanalyse zur Ermittlung psychischer Leistungsanforderungen bei Schiffsführern der Binnenschiffahrt [in German]
Bibliographic information 1975, Vol.22, No.4-5, p.139-147. Illus. 9 ref.
Abstract Evaluation of 745 damage reports between 1970 and 1972 and a work activity study provided an insight into the stresses imposed on skippers of push-tugs and motor barges on inland waterways. Commonly occurring difficult traffic situations involving a high degree of hazard must be included in the training and on-going training syllabus for masters of this type of vessel. To reduce stresses it appears necessary to mark critical points along waterways.
