Abstract [sv]

I takt med att det svenska tonnaget flaggas ut och förminskas söker sig allt fler nyexaminerade styrmän till andra marknader. Ett stort sådant segment är den norska offshoreindustrin. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka nyutexaminerade styrmäns upplevelser av oro och stress under första tiden som yrkesverksamma och om dessa upplevelser skilde sig åt beroende på vilken bransch de var verksamma i. För att undersöka detta användes en kvalitativ metod där personliga intervjuer genomfördes. Åtta styrmän, fyra från den traditionella svenska handelsflottan och fyra som är verksamma inom offshorebranschen, som tagit examen från Sjöfartshögskolan i Kalmar våren 2012, valdes slumpvis ut för intervjuer. Resultatet från intervjuerna visade att styrmännen, oberoende av bransch, upplevde högre nivåer av stress och oro under de första törnarna än senare i karriären. Detta härleddes till oro över den egna arbetsförmågan och det plötsligt ökade ansvarsområdet man som nyutexaminerad upplever. Undersökningen slog även fast att sömnbrist är en betydande faktor i upplevd stress och oro och att detta är vanligt inom offshorebranschen, där det är vanligare att arbeta efter ett tvåvaktsystem.

Abstract [en]

With an ever decreasing Swedish tonnage more and more maritime graduates seek out other segments than the traditional Swedish trades. A major one of these segments is the Norwegian offshore market. The purpose of this study was to investigate recently graduated maritime officer’s experiences of stress and worries during their first turns as active officers and if these experiences differed depending on which segment they were active in. A qualitative method with personal interviews was used to investigate these questions. Eight recently graduated officers were interviewed, four from the traditional Swedish merchant navy and four from the Norwegian offshore industry. All graduated in the spring of 2012.The results from the interviews showed that the officers, not depending on which segment they were active in, experienced higher levels of stress during their first turns than later in their career. This was due to worry with the graduates about their own professional abilities and the increase in responsibility that graduates experience in the beginning of their careers. The study also found that lack of sleep is a major factor in the stress equation and that this was more common within the offshore industry, due to the extensive use of the two-watch system within that segment.
