The ship is a unique workplace. Seafarers are more prone to having lack of quality sleep and rest because of their dynamic working hours, the unpredictable sea and weather conditions, and crew changes every now and then, among others. This lack of quality sleep and rest results into fatigue, which can potentially jeopardize the overall safety of the vessel and the crew.
This film should be utilised as a collaborative tool to drive reflection and sharing of the seafarers’ personal experiences and insights on the subject. Their motivation to speak out is triggered by the guide questions shown after each segment of the film. Through their active involvement in the team discussions, the learners are expected to develop a much deeper understanding about fatigue, its symptoms and measures to avoid its occurrence.
