 Production and protection. Seafarers’ handling of pressure in gemeinschaft and gesellshaft

 

​Forfattere: Kristine Vedal Størkersen, Alexandra Laiou, Tor-Olav Nævestad og George Yannis.



​Seafarers experience conflicting objectives of production and protection in most operations. This study explores how seafarers deal with such pressures, through an analysis of interview data from 20 seafarers working on Norwegian- and Greek-controlled coastal and international passenger and cargo vessels of different sizes. Despite the various contexts, the results show similar conflicting objectives and pressure handling. The pressure is experienced differently, however, due to diverse organizational relations. Seafarers on the large vessels in large companies describe business-like relations (gesellshaft) and direct efficiency pressures from superiors. Seafarers on the smaller vessels in small companies contrastingly report of close relations (gemeinschaft), devotion to the company and thus an internal wish to be efficient.
