The World Maritime University is seeking to find out seafarers’ views on hours of work/rest, workload, and ship manning in a new survey.
Seafarers who are currently working on any commercial ship or who have worked on such ships at any time after 1st February 1997 are invited to participate in the survey.
The survey is conducted by the World Maritime University (WMU) in collaboration with the International Federation of Shipmasters' Associations (IFSMA), the Nautical Institute (NI), the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), and the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN). The survey is part of research funded by the ITF Seafarers’ Trust.
At the conclusion of this survey, WMU will work with the maritime community to consider improvements.
