The International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s World Maritime University (WMU) in Sweden is calling all Seafarers to take part in a survey.

As gCaptain reports, the survey is open to seafarers who are currently working on any commercial ship, or have worked on such ships at any time after 1 February 1997, to participate in a survey on hours of work/rest, workload, and ship manning.

WMU is conducting the survey 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 the survey, WMU will work with the maritime community to consider improvements.

The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and all responses will remain strictly confidential. You are welcome to share the survey link with seafarers in your network. The participation deadline is 31 December 2022.

Follow the link to complete the survey which leads to choice of language before continuing the survey.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
