Misidentification of dangerous goods a big safety issue on container ships

     Container ship fire

Fires on container ships, caused by incorrect handling, processing and labelling of dangerous goods, are estimated to be happening on average every 60 days.  This year alone there have been three such major incidents.

These fires not only cost millions of dollars in cargo losses and damage to vessels, but can also result in loss of life to crew members who work on container ships.

Insurance providers say new legislation, enforcement and inspection are needed to improve safety.
