Using information obtained from files at the Registrar General for Shipping, the Marine Accident Investigation Branch, & many Coroners, the evidence indicates that seafarers employed in foreign vessels during the study period 1986-1995 were at greater risk of mortality through work-related accidents. When compared with their counterparts in the British fleet, they also died more frequently by suicide & unexplained disappearances at sea. 4 British seafarers on British vessels died by suicide compared to 7 British seafarers on foreign vessels.
