Abstract [en]

This paper is based on the work presented in Österman, C. (2012), ‘Developing a value proposition of maritime ergonomics’, PhD thesis, Department of Shipping and Marinetechnology, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.

There is a large body of knowledge available on the role of human factors for successful (andunsuccessful) systems. Domain specific handbooks, guidelines and standards can be found alsofor the maritime industry. Yet, the deteriorating figure of maritime casualties and the highincidence of occupational accidents suggest this knowledge is not utilised to its full potential.

The purpose of this paper is to present a value proposition of maritime human factors,positioning the potential core values that can be delivered to stakeholders within and outside themaritime transport system.

The paper adopts an exploratory research approach, investigating thelink between human factors and operational performance from several different angles. Methods for data collection include literature studies, individual and focus group interviews, and a casestudy involving a shipping company.

The synthesis of the results is presented in terms of a value proposition that describes the valuefor the employee in terms of improved health and well-being, learning, skill discretion andindependence in life. Values for the company include increased operational performance and flexibility, advantages in recruiting and retaining personnel. Values for the sector includecompetitive strength, attractiveness of work and increased learning across the industry. Values for the society include reduced costs for health care and social security, reduced environmentalimpact, and a sustainable working life.These results are a first step to make visible the effects of human factors management on overallsystems performance in the maritime domain.
