Occupational injuries suffered by marine engineering staff : A survey of the risks that marine engineering staff is exposed to on board Swedish ships, and a comparison of the risk of injury with similar work ashore (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med undersökningen är att kartlägga skaderiskerna med att arbeta som marin maskinpersonal och jämföra skaderisken med anställda som har liknande arbeten iland. Undersökningen inbegriper även att kartlägga vilka typer av arbetsskador, som ger de mest allvarliga konsekvenserna för den anställde i förhållande till hur vanlig olyckan är.

Undersökningen är en litteraturstudie där Arbetsmiljöverkets arbetsskadeanmälningar utgör grundmaterialet, där totalt 198 arbetsskador behandlades och kategoriserades. Transportstyrelsens statistik för ombordanställda jämfördes med Arbetsmiljöverket och Statistiska centralbyrån statistik över anställda iland. Detta för att se vilken yrkeskategori som hade högst skaderisk.

Resultatet av undersökningen visar att arbetsolyckor under kategorierna ”Bära” och ”Halka/Snubbla/Trilla” och arbetssjukdomar under kategorin ”Tunga lyft/Arbetsställningar” är de arbetsskador, som ger de mest allvarliga konsekvenserna i förhållande till hur vanlig arbetsskadan är. Vid jämförelsen av skaderisken med liknande yrkeskategorier iland ligger maskinanställda till sjöss näst sämst till. Den yrkeskategori som är mest lik marin maskinpersonal har fyra gånger mindre skaderisk.

Abstract [en]

The aim with this thesis is to identify the risks of injury while working as marine engine staff and compare the risk of injury to employees who have similar jobs ashore. The thesis also includes identifying the types of work injuries, which leads to the most serious consequences for the employee in relation to how frequent the accident is.

The thesis studied literature in which the Swedish Work Environment Authority's work injury reports are the base material, where a total of 198 injuries were treated and categorized. The Swedish Transport Agency’s statistics for employees at sea were compared with the Swedish Work Environment Authority’s and the Swedish Central Bureau of Statistics’ statistics for employees ashore.

The result of the thesis show that work related accidents categorized as "Carry" and "Slip/Trip/Fall" and work related diseases categorized as "Heavy lifting/Working positions" are the injuries leading to the most serious consequences in relation to how frequent the accident is. When comparing the risk of injury with similar professions ashore, marine engine staff is the second worst. The profession most similar to marine engine staff has four times less risk of injury.
