INJURIES AND ILLNESSES ON U.S. SHIPS
The report is a compilation of the frequency rate of illnesses and injuries reported by seamen employed on U.S. Merchant Ships. The statistics indicate that, while the number of seamen employed has decreased, the frequency of illnesses and injuries has increased substantially. Analysis of the data collected in the course of this study, indicates that the costs to industry for such repatriation and hospitalization has increased greatly. Broad Job Rating and Broad Job Category are assessed for their relationship to the illness/injury frequency and distribution. The results are discussed in the report.
