Abstract [sv]

Den 20 augusti år 2013 trädde Maritime Labour Convention 2006 i kraft. Denna studie har genom intervjuer med nautiska befäl ombord på svenskflaggade fartyg och genom en litteraturstudie, undersökt hur effekten av den nya konventionen upplevts. Syftet med studien var att få insikt i hur konventionen påverkat besättningsmedlemmar samt undersöka hur kraven efterlevs och vilka förändringar som behövts göras ombord med avseende på arbetstid, vilotid och bemanning. I intervjuerna framkom det att inga större förändringar har gjorts ombord i samband med implementeringen av konventionen. Detta eftersom större delen av konventionens krav redan varit implementerade i svensk lagstiftning. Det framkom dock att de nautiska befälen upplever svårigheter med att leva upp till kraven om vilotid och arbetstid samt att detta inte dokumenteras sanningsenligt. Orsaken till detta upplevs vara att bemanningen ombord på fartygen idag inte är tillräcklig. Resultatet visar att många lösningar på detta problem finns och att högre krav ska ställas på rederier och flaggstater för att en förändring ska kunna ske.

Abstract [en]

On August 20, 2013 the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 entered into force. This study has through interviews with navigating officers onboard Swedish flagged vessels and through a literature study, examined the effect of the new Convention seen from the navigating officers’ point of view. The purpose of this study was to gain insight into how the Convention effected the crew and examine how the requirements are complied with and what changes has been made onboard in regards of hours of work, hours of rest and manning levels. The interviews revealed that no major changes have been made onboard as result of the implementation of the Convention. The reason for this is that most of the requirements of the Convention was already implemented in Swedish law. It appeared, however, that seafarers are experiencing difficulties in meeting the demands regarding hours of rest and that this is not being documented truthfully. The reason for this is percieved to be that the manning levels onboard the ships today is not sufficient. The results show that many solutions exist to this problem, and that greater demands needs to be placed on shipowners and flag states for a change to take place.
