THE SHIP AS A PLACE OF WORK

The paper summarizes parts of the conclusions from a commission report on the study of safety in the working situation on board ships. An actual accident is discussed in order to illustrate some of the findings. It is concluded that accidents happen when the opportunity is offered ("accident offer") and that one must work to reduce the number of such opportunities. Order from NSFI as No. 17239.
