Nautilus launches crew connectivity survey

Maritime trade union Nautilus International has launched a survey on crew connectivity, which it says will be used to help seafarers shape the way shipping companies use technology on board vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}In April this year, the union launched a new campaign to encourage all ship owners to provide quality connectivity to crew on board ships, and this survey aims to provide information about the related issues that are most important to seafarers.

“The first stage of our ‘Crew Comms’ campaign is to find out what seafarers think about their current connection on board and in ports and what they want to see in the future,” said Nautilus International general secretary, Mark Dickinson.

“Some of the questions have been asked before, but this will be the first time that they are all in the same place and the results will allow Nautilus to monitor how the situation has changed in recent years.”

“It is vital that all members currently serving at sea take part in this survey, whether they believe they have excellent communications onboard or not, as good practice and bad can all help to inform our campaign and provide stepping stones for improvement to the lives of seafarers onboard.”

The survey will take about 10 minutes, and every person who completes it will be entered into a draw to win one of five tablet computers.
