The STCW 1995 Convention: Awareness
1 John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University, Iloilo City, Philippines
ABSTRACT: This survey research focused on the STCW 1995 and related awareness, attitude and compliance among 232 selected seafarers in the Philippines. Conducted in August 2004, the study utilized three researcher-made data-gathering instruments- the STCW 1995 Awareness Scale, STCW 1995 Attitude Scale, and Seafarer?s Compliance with the STCW 1995 Code Rating Scale. Means, standard deviations, the t-test for independent samples, the One-Way Analysis of Variance, and the Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis were the statistical tools used. Significance level for all inferential tests was set at .05. The study found out that, generally, the seafarers had ?very high? level of awareness of, ?neutral? attitude towards, and ?above average? compliance with the requirements of the STCW 1995 Convention.
