Title German inland water transport accident statistics for 1976
Original title Unfallstatistik 1976 der deutschen Binnenschiffahrt [in German]
Bibliographic information 1977, No.2, p.3-10. Illus.
Abstract These statistics supplied by the Mutual Accident Insurance Association for Inland Water Transport cover some 10,000 tugs, barges, dredgers and other vessels (synoptic table) and 38,500 workers. There has been a decreasing trend in the number of boatmen and other inland water transport workers since 1964, with a corresponding decrease in the number of occupational accidents. Diagrams and graphs illustrate the following aspects of these statistics (in absolute numbers): injuries among insured workers; accidents in relation to the overall economic situation in W. Germany; breakdown of accidents (falls, ropes and cables, tools, boats, hazardous substances, winches, trans-shipment, machines, etc.). There has been little falling-off in the frequency of accidents in general, whereas the absolute number of fatal accidents and other categories of accident has decreased considerably.
