Occupational and health safety on cruise ships: dimensions of injuries among crew members

Work-related injuries on cruise ships have profound adverse consequences on employee engagement and the work environment, creating among crew members a perception of unattractive and unfavourable working conditions. The purpose of the present study is to outline the dimensions of injuries among crew members on board cruise ships. In-depth interviews with open-ended questions were conducted with 39 crew members who work on cruise ships. Dimensions of injuries among crew members on board cruise ships were: (1) slipping, stumbling, and falling; (2) body moving with or without any physical pressure, and (3) contacts with physical objects or liquid substances. Occupational and health safety on cruise ships is still an uncharted field of science. To the best of the author’s knowledge, this is only the second study that deals with crew injuries on cruise ships.
