“The Danish Maritime Authority has initiated a study of seafarers’ perception of administrative burdens. The survey aims to include seafarers of all nationalities. The project will contribute to:
1 A better understanding of seafarers’ view on administrative work onboard
and, hence, provide basis for initiatives aiming to
2 Improve seafarers’ job satisfaction by reducing administrative burdens
The survey will be an important contribution to clarifying how administrative burdens influence seafarers daily working life. You can answer the survey by clicking on the link and fill out the survey electronically. The survey is completely anonymous and no personal information will be disclosed.
Please access the link to the survey using www.intermanager.org
It is very important for members of InterManager that as many seafarers as possible participates in this survey. Please make sure YOUR SEA STAFF is informed and encouraged to participate.

Working over water and, in particular, boat transfers, during which surveyors switch from a transfer vessel to the boat they are surveying, is a very high-risk activity. The film, originally developed for Lloyd’s Register employees, aims to raise awareness about the associated risks and hazards, and to provide instruction for every stage of the transfer. It is hoped that Safe Boat Transfers will help to significantly reduce the accidents associated with boat transfers.
