What can we do to promote well-being on board? What is important and what is not? Seahealth has drawn up ten commandments on well-being.
In our survey on well-being at sea, it turned out that factors such as recognition, a feeling of fellowship, the possibility of using your skills and of learning something new are highly important for seagoing crew. A general willingness to listen to problems, the willingness of the company organisation to listen and the ability of senior officers to pass on important information mean a lot to seafarers.
The Ten Commandments
There are 10 points which are especially important for well-being when working on board. These are as follows:
- You must feel motivated and involved in your work.
- Your immediate superior must be willing to listen to any problems you have with work.
- You efforts must be recognised.
- You must be part of a community on board, both when off and on duty.
- You must have good relations with the company.
- The company organization ashore must respond /react to the crew's suggestions and wishes.
