Applied chaos theory to evaluation for walking environment on occupational safety management at shipyard

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Fall-type accidents are the main topic of this paper, because this type of accident accounts for 30% of occupational accidents which occur at shipyards. This type of accident happens during walking around ship construction areas. In order to understand the factors which generate a harmful walking mode, the relationship between the fluctuation of the motion of the walking body and the walkway environment was investigated, and a fluctuation analysis based on a technique belonging to applied chaos theory, was conducted. This analytical methodology is proposed for the analysis of the influence of the walkway environment on occupational safety at shipyards.
