Title Contribution to the health status of inland waterway crews on the basis of occupational medical screening examinations
Original title Beitrag zum Gesundheitszustand von Binnenschiffsbesatzungen auf der Grundlage arbeitsmedizinischer Screeninguntersuchungen [in German]
Bibliographic information 1975, Vol.22, No.4-5, p.156-161. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract Analysis of the health status of 110 inland waterway sailors. The incidence of cardiovascular disorders (27%) was considerably higher than in other branches of industry, while that of musculoskeletal (13%), respiratory (7%) and digestive (7%) complaints was lower. Sequelae of injury are important on account of the high accident rate in this occupation. Differences in the morbidity structure between the two main categories - master and crew members - are accounted for only by the fact that the former are 10 years older on average.
