Özet

Despite the developed technology and numerous rules introduced for the purpose of reducing the effects of human error on marine accidents, human error remains as the greatest cause of the accidents. A great majority of the accidents occur due to human error caused by fatigue. Human fatigue is difficult to measure and even more difficult to state as a cause to an accident. Therefore, conducting studies on the causes of fatigue and fatigue levels of seafarers is important in terms of emphasizing on the effect of fatigue in marine accidents.
