‘Changes in seafarers’ health 2011-16

‘Changes in seafarers’ health 2011-2016 available

On the website of Seafarers International Research Centre is a new publication ‘Changes in seafarers’ health 2011-16 available. This report gives an overview of the results of a questionnaire administered in both 2011 and 2016 relating to seafarers’ medication and health.

The Seafarers International Research Centre (SIRC) is part of the Cardiff University School of Social Sciences. SIRC has a particular emphasis on issues of occupational safety and health.

Conclusion of this report is that there seems to be some improvements in the behavior and in practice in the period between 2011 and 2016.  For example: seafarers drink and smoke less and seem to eat healthier. They eat more vegetables and they eat less fried food both at home and at sea. However, some things are not improved: sleep quality. This seems to be related to environmental and work factors.

The health of seafarers is very important in their daily work on board of a ship. It contributes to the fitness and fun in the work of seafarers and safety on board.
