Types of Injuries

Maritime work can be a dangerous industry simply due to the nature of the work itself and where it is conducted. Weather patterns, malfunctioning equipment, unstable ship cargo, and even the sea itself can all contribute to a very dangerous work environment for all those onboard the vessel.
Some of the more common offshore injuries can include:

  • Slip and fall accident
  • Man overboard
  • Falling and swinging object
  • Cable and rope injury
  • Lifting injury
  • Chemical injury
  • Burn injury
  • Repetitive motion injury
  • Crushing injury
  • Winch injury
  • Crushing injury
  • Loss of hearing
  • Electric injury

and many more. The types of equipment and tools used onboard most vessels are a leading contributor to these injuries, as are the changing conditions of the river, sea, or ocean your vessel is working on.
