Guidance and recommendations developed in Phase Two of ISWAN's Social Interaction Matters (SIM) Project, sponsored by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and Red Ensign Group.
The research in Phase Two obtained and examined first-hand accounts from seafarers to explore the impacts, drivers and barriers of social interaction whilst living and working on board. The recommendations, conclusions and guidance are underpinned from substantial research conducted with the participation of 21 vessels, from 10 different shipping companies operating worldwide.
