This report is the third of a series examining ‘safety and perceptions of risk’ in the maritime sector. The report compares data obtained from two sources. The first are derived from a large scale questionnaire survey conducted in 2006 by The Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust Research Unit (The LRETRU) at the Seafarers International Research Centre (SIRC). This was designed to identify how workers in the maritime sector perceive risk. Completed responses were received from 2,372 individuals from 50 different countries, with a response rate of 36%. The second set of data consists of incident data obtained from 16 Maritime Administrations and two shipping companies. Only six of the Administration datasets were suitable for aggregation and thus comparison. The two sets of data are compared to determine the extent to which workers’ perceptions of risk correlate with reported incident frequencies. The analysis is presented in two parts. The first examines ship level incidents, i.e. collision, fire, grounding, etc. The second focuses on factors related to personal injury, and includes the following: cause of injury; task being undertaken; broader context; place of incident aboard ship; rank; work department; nationality; age; experience; and types of vessel.
