Título Major differences in rates of occupational accidents between different nationalities of seafarers
Información bibliográfica 2008, Vol.59, No.1-4, p.7-18. 17 ref.
Resumen Earlier studies have shown that merchant seafarers from South-East Asia had considerably lower accident rates when compared with seafarers from Western Europe. The purposes of this study were to confirm the earlier observations and to identify specific causes of excess accident rates among certain nationalities. Occupational accidents aboard Danish merchant ships during one year were identified from various sources. The incidence rate ratio (IRR) for East European seafarers was 0.88 and for South East Asians 0.38 using West European seafarers as reference. Implications of these findings are discussed.
