Socioeconomic Factors and Navigational Safety among Marine Pilots in Lagos Ports
1 Redeemer University, Ede, Nigeria
ABSTRACT: Marine transportation is a critical component of global trade and commerce, with ports serving as key nodes for the movement of goods and people. However, navigating these ports can be hazardous, with the potential for accidents and incidents that can lead to loss of life, environmental damage, and economic disruption. This study investigates the impact of socioeconomic factors on the operational risk assessments and adoption of innovative navigational aids for better safety among marine pilots in Lagos ports. A mixed-methods approach is employed, combining surveys and interviews to collect data from a sample of marine pilots operating in Lagos ports. The study focuses on the decision-making process of marine pilots in high-risk environments, exploring how factors such as education level, income, and experience might influence their risk assessments and willingness to adopt new technologies. The study's findings have important implications for policies and programs aimed at promoting safer navigation practices in Lagos ports and improving the overall safety of marine operations. The results can also inform the design of training and education programs for marine pilots, as well as the development of new technologies and tools to support safe navigation.
