  1. Trends of the rates of fatal injuries in the fishing industry A review Olaf Jensen, Centre for Maritime Safety & Health Esbjerg Denmark

  2. ABSTRACT The review is based on peer-reviewed scientific publications and some reports from the maritime authorities. Studies from Poland, UK, Alaska, Norway, Iceland, USA and Denmark show more or less similar results. There has been about 50 % reduction of the fatal injury rates in fishing since the 1970’ies. The relative risk for fatal injuries in fishing compared with other industries varied from about 25 to 50. There is consistent evidence that around half of the fatal injuries are related to vessel disasters and that fatigue and lack of good safety culture is a main risk factors for the vessel disasters. Studies of the risk factors for vessel disasters including fatigue are recommended. Incidence Rates = per / 1000 man-years
