Abstract [sv]

Alla SOLAS-fartyg har ett krav på att vara utrustade med ECDIS ombord fartygsbryggorna senast 1:a juli 2018 och de nya kraven blir en utmaning i kompetens för sjöfarten. Idag är ungefär 80% av alla olyckor som sker till sjöss orsakade av den mänskliga faktorn. Denna kvalitativa studie är fokuserad på hur operatören upplever handhavandet och ECDIS användarvänlighet ombord fartygsbryggorna. Resultaten av studien visar att det finns kunskapsklyftor mellan befälen till sjöss samt att det finns behov för utveckling av utbildningar och kraven för certifiering på ECDIS. Studien baseras på avgångsklassen på Sjökaptensprogrammet i Kalmar 2019 och aktiva sjöbefäls perspektiv och åsikter om användarvänlighet, utbildning, kompetens och säkerhet angående ECDIS. Studien tar även upp haverirapporter och belyser farorna med okunskap och felaktigt användande som direkt kan resultera i onödiga olyckor.

Abstract [en]

All ships regulated by SOLAS were required to have ECDIS onboard by 1st of July 2018, these new requirements pose a challenge in competence for the maritime industry. Today approximately 80% of accidents at sea are caused by the human factor. This qualitative study focuses on the operators experiences and the user-friendliness of ECDIS on the bridge. The results of the study indicates that knowledge gaps regarding ECDIS exists varying between officers and that improvement of the education can be done as well as revising the requirements for certification of ECDIS. The study is based on the graduating class of master mariners of 2019 in Kalmar and active officers’ perspective and opinions on user-friendliness, education, competency and safety regarding ECDIS. The study also entails maritime accidents and highlights the dangers of lack of knowledge and how the faulty use of ECDIS can lead to unnecessary accidents.
