A British "Tanker Safety Group", an official committee representing the oil and shipping industries and seamen's unions, has reviewed the serious casualties to tankes of 10,000 dwt and above, which have occured between 1968-75. It concludes that the casualty rate for supertankers is no worse than for smaller tankers. Early design inadequacies and tanker hull strength were two design factors considered, along with crew training and operating factors.
