Abstract [en]

The presented research program investigates the association between working conditions aboard High-Speed Craft (HSC) and its outcomes in terms of acceleration exposure and crew health and systems performance respectively. The aim is to identify the related risk factors and further, to use them to improve the assessment criteria in a simulation-based-design framework. The investigation initially document a seaborne population by a web-based questionnaire tailored for High-Performance Marine Craft Personnel (HPMCP) and similar populations. Then data is collected during regular service by measuring craft acceleration and through another questionnaire especially resolute on perceived work-exposure, health and performance. Exposure and performance data is collected daily and health data weekly, depending on seaborne frequency. The population repeats the prevalence questionnaire about a year later enabling a longitudinal follow-up for identifying long-term effects of exposure. The paper reports the two questionnaires´ development and pilot test as well as the first application for baseline data collection in the target group. The results indicate health and performance characteristics of the study population and data shows a promising correlation between the self-reported subjective exposure and the measured objective acceleration. Data indicates a comparatively higher prevalence of musculoskeletal pain in the study population than that of the general population.
