This blog I have written as an article, what I have read in the “Alert”, the magazine published by the Nautical Institute. It is written originally by Maria Pittordis, Partner, Hill Taylor Dickinson, a maritime consulting firm, concerning the claims arising due to stress related medical conditions in the sea

The human element is a generic term to describe what makes humans behave the way they do and the consequences that result. As a subject, it is of great importance to everyone in the maritime industry because we all rely on the contributions of each other to succeed in our business. Understanding how and why people do things and developing the skill of correct interpretation is a key element in the learning process of a ship’s Engineering Officer.

At the time of writing news is coming in of the arrest of a Chinese crewman after a collision in Japanese waters which killed five seafarers and left another unaccounted for. This is a tragedy, but it is sadly far from an isolated incident. According to a raft of reports from IMO downwards between 80-85% of all accidents at sea are caused by human error and despite the ever-increasing burden of regulation and compliance this figure stubbornly refuses to reduce.

It is not that rules aren’t in place, but that they aren’t being followed: on this there is general consensus, but when it comes to how technology can address that, views diverge.

How good was the connectivity and communications services you experienced on your last voyage? How easy were they to access, what services did you use and what future services would you like ship operators to provide?

Futurenautics is conducting its annual Crew Connectivity Survey and would like to hear from you about your experiences of connectivity at sea. The survey is a multiple choice online survey for serving seafarers only. As in 2014, Futurenautics will make the full report available free to all seafarers and will also give away 3 Smart Watches in a prize draw to 3 lucky survey participants.

We believe that the publication of the full research findings will benefit seafarers and the wider industry by giving a full picture of the current connectivity facilities provided at sea, allowing companies and seagoing staff to benchmark provision by sector and across the industry.

For your chance to win one of three Smart Watches please take the survey by clicking on the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015CrewConnectivity
