ANALYSIS OF MARINE INCIDENTS IN PORTS AND HARBORS 1976

This Report describes a pilot study carried out by the National Physical Laboratory, at the request of the National Ports Council, to collect, collate and analyse the data on incidents occurring in 10 British ports. Preliminary analysis of results showed that some two-thirds of incidents were impacts or strikings, nearly all of which involved contact with dock installations. In contrast, the number of collisions, explosions and fires was low, and mainly involved dry cargo vessels and barges, but relatively few tankers. Order from BSRA as No. 52,380.
