Research on sailors health and working environment

Web enquiry "Work environment and Safety for Seafarers"

We are currently investigating factors of importance as to the work environment and safety on board ships among seafarers in the Swedish merchant fleet. In January 2014, a webbased questionnaire was sent out to seafarers in the Swedish merchant fleet, and we are currently analysing the answers.

You can see the questionnaire here below.


You are welcome to contact us for further information if needed.
