Causes of on-board occupational accidents need to be evaluated in a correct manner to regulate more functional practices and also to lower the on-board accident rates. However, causes of on-board accidents can be extremely complex. Therefore, scientific methods should be used to evaluate the causes and to determine the measures to be taken. The evaluation of the parameters is of great importance for the future of the maritime sector and in terms of development. In this study, factors have been identified that lead to seafarers? occupational accidents on board and we tried to present alternative solutions which can be applied on this issue. Severity of the reasons that led to the accidents and their relationships with each other are identified to be able to sort through the alternative solutions with a model using the fuzzy AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) method approach. Results of the study revealed that the most important criteria for the occupational accidents on board criteria selection are respectively; human factors, lack of management, ship-borne troubles, cargo troubles and environmental factors.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.12.01.10}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), Fuzzy AHP, Occupational Accidents, Safety at Sea, Fuzzy Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (FMCDM), Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM), On-board Accidents, MCDM Model} }
