Despite the fact that the IMSBC Code provides a precise stipulation of the possibilities of threats to human life and clearly describes requirements regarding the transport of hazardous substances, the number of marine casualties caused by hazardous substances used on-board ships or by substances transported by them is not diminishing. Studies conducted by the Marine Accident Investigators' International Forum (MAIIF) demonstrate that causes of marine casualties frequently include: departures from established procedures, ignorance, lack of identification and proper marking of hazardous areas on-board a ship, instinctive and emotional nature of rescue activities unsupported by adequate knowledge and exercises. In the article an attempt was made at combining the state of knowledge of chemistry among the students of the first years of the Maritime University in Szczecin with the causes of marine casualties resulting from a human factor.
