Several studies demonstrate a high mortality among seamen but this has not been related to different types of work on board.
This study examined a possible relationship between work on tankers and mortality.
Tankers differ from other ships by carrying different types of oil, oil products and other chemicals.
Mortality was studied in 1687 men who were captains and mates during the period 1970-1987, and were registered by a Norwegian census in 1970.
The data were linked to the Norwegian Register of Death Certificates.
