    Abstract

    Our research aims to identify and quantify the potential health, safety and environmental impact of ship recycling, as well as assisting the achievement of safe, environmentally-sound management of end of life ships. We provided evidence and data on potential risks to air emission, water pollution and human health and safety. In the ship recycling sector, we have helped to achieve a reduction in accidents, increased numbers of regulation compliant ship recycling yards, increased numbers of workers trained for ship recycling, increased use of personal protective equipment, and reduced sea and soil pollution.
