Falling from a height is the major cause of death and injuries in shipyards and similar constructive industries. This study aims to comprehensively investigate the causes of occupational accidental falls in shipyards. A solution methodology is presented to determine the weights of these causes of accidental falls. In this solution methodology, weighting scores are assigned to experts according to their professional position, work experience, and education level. Moreover, consistency analysis is performed for expert judgments and their aggregated forms. Although the findings show that the dominant cause of accidental falls in shipyards is human risks, the shipyard area and environmental risks, organizational risks, and safety risks should also be considered as a whole.
