127 monthly casualty return sheets 1964-1974 from the Liverpool Underwriters Association were analyzed for ships over 2,000 gross tons. Casualties were studied world wide, with special interest in casualties deriving from collisions, and more specifically for three proposed nuclear ship routes. It was found that collisions and groundings remained constant for this period while world fleet increased. In the period there were 831 ships in collision, 850 groundings and 477 fires. The data collected for nuclear ship routes were used in a report on probability of collisions on selected routes, 5516-5.
