Burden of disease from road traffic and railway noise
A quantification of healthy life years lost in Sweden This paper provides the first estimation of the health burden in terms of disability-adjusted life-years (DALY) of noise from the transport sector in Sweden. Assessments of health impacts of noise on a national level are still rare, but provide valuable tools for policymakers in order to prevent and abate environmental noise exposure.

Occupational accidents in the Danish merchant fleet and the nationality of seafarers
BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to examine occupational accidents reported from non-passenger merchant ships registered in the Danish International Ship Register in 2010-2012, with a focus on analysing nationality differences in the risk of getting injured in an accident. METHODS: Data about notified occupational accidents were collected from notifications sent to the Danish Maritime Authority and from records of contact with Danish Radio Medical. Events were matched by personal identification and accident data to create a unified database. Stratified cumulative time spent on board by seafarers...
Occupational fatalities among driver/sales workers and truck drivers in the United States, 2003-2008
BACKGROUND: This study provides a national profile of occupational fatalities among truck drivers and driver-sales workers. METHODS: Data from the 2003-2008 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries were used. Cases were extracted specifically for occupational subcategories included in the Driver/Sales Workers and Truck Drivers occupational category: Driver/Sales Workers, Heavy and Tractor-Trailer Truck Drivers, and Light Truck or Delivery Services Drivers. RESULTS: In 2003-2008, the group Driver/Sales Workers and Truck Drivers had 5,568 occupational fatalities, representing 17% of all occupational...
Mortality among a cohort of U.S. commercial airline cockpit crew
BACKGROUND: We evaluated mortality among 5,964 former U.S. commercial cockpit crew (pilots and flight engineers). The outcomes of a priori interest were non-chronic lymphocytic leukemia, central nervous system (CNS) cancer (including brain), and malignant melanoma. METHODS: Vital status was ascertained through 2008. Life table and Cox regression analyses were conducted. Cumulative exposure to cosmic radiation was estimated from work history data. RESULTS: Compared to the U.S. general population, mortality from all causes, all cancer, and cardiovascular diseases was decreased, but mortality from...
Fatal accidents and injuries among merchant seafarers worldwide
BACKGROUND: The British merchant fleet has expanded in recent years but it is not known whether this expansion has led to proportionate changes in mortality. AIMS: To investigate mortality from accidents and injuries in British merchant shipping, to determine whether this has increased in recent years, to compare fatal accident rates across British industries and to review fatal accident rates in merchant shipping worldwide over the last 70 years. METHODS: Examinations of marine accident investigation files, death registers and death inquiry files, national mortality statistics, worldwide surveys...
Shipyard fatalities in Turkey
The objective of this paper is to investigate causes and incidence rates of 115 fatalities between 2000 and 2010 in Turkish shipyards and to propose mitigation measures. The fatality rate in Turkish shipbuilding industry is unacceptably high, being 3.5 times the average of all industry groups. Classification of fatal occupational accidents revealed five major fatality reasons for the shipbuilding industry; falling from higher elevation to a lower level, exposed to electric shock, fire and/or explosion, being struck by or struck against objects, and caught in between. The highest number of cases...
Air transport industry statistics report
This report examines the accidents reported in the ports industry over a five-year period from 2006/07 to 2010/11p. The data represents accidents and dangerous occurrences reported to HSE under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995. A further section is included on enforcement activity carried out by HSE in the 3 years to 2010/11p. In 2009 HSE transferred to a new industrial classification system (SIC 2007 from SIC 2003).
