This research program explores all aspects of marine safety with a specific focus on recreational boaters.

The focus for the research program is twofold:

  • To explore marine-related injury and incidents using epidemiological methods
  • To evaluate marine safety education and training programs

An important issue for our research is developing methods for collecting relevant data and the analysis of such data to support marine safety counter-measures.
