A DISCUSSION OF DETERMINANTS OF WORK PERFORMANCE ON BOARD SHIP

The paper reports on the findings of a recent study on the attitude of ship's officers and draws comparisons between this and a similar American study on civil servants. It discusses the structures of attitudes to work in the two samples, the experience of work and self-esteem and the events in the wider context of the ship and their consequences for the experience and actions of seafarers. The "Hoegh Mistral Project" is reviewed. It is concluded that in general recent changes in training and crew size have had a detrimental effect on work performance aboard ship. Order from NSFI as No. 17088.
