The Union also supports surveys run by individual members and external organisations, where their results may impact on our members or contribute to good practice in the wider industry. To speak to Nautilus about collaborating on a survey, please contact the communications department at [email protected].
The outcomes from recent Union surveys can be found in the publications section of the website. Any surveys currently running are listed below.
The Union has teamed up with Martek to explore the provision and effectiveness of healthcare services onboard seafaring vessels.
Seafarers are being asked to fill in a questionnaire and help the University of Central Lancashire’s Law School — which is conducting research into whether corporate manslaughter legislation could be used to enforce better compliance with the International Safety Management (ISM) Code.
The survey, launched at the UK October 2016 branch conference, was a result of a motion to the Union’ General Meeting in October last year. It asked members whether they have suffered any bullying or harassment as a consequence of a diversity issue and whether the Union could do more to support them.
