Investigation the Root Causes of Seafarers' Turnover and its Impact on the Safe Operation of the Ship
1 Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey
ABSTRACT: Thus, the importance of turnover from the point of view of managers? is that a high rate of turnover not only necessitates a costly personnel replacement, recruitment, selection and training of new personnel but also disrupts normal operations resulting in a loss of productivity and safety. Besides a loss of critical personnel who is carrying out core activities, like master, chief engineer or chief officer that can not be compensated easily with an other competent alternative, it could definitely result in a loss of production and loss of a skilled worker who is competent and reliable with safety precautions and company politics which means loss of thousands of dollars in maritime transportation. This study concentrates on making an investigation on ?intention to quit? and its antecedents. Consequently the effects of turnover on both organizational and safety aspects and their countermeasures are discussed in advanced.
