STUDY OF ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE IN A VESSEL - REFLECTIONS ON THE CREW BEHAVIOR AND SAFETY
With the increasing number of organizations in the XXI century and against a background of rapid changes arising from the globalization process which affect the organizations as a whole, there have been changes in employment relationships, habits and even in the very culture of the organization, triggering conflicts between leaders and their employees. Within the labor world, every profession has its own characteristics and peculiarities which deserve special attention, as is the case of professionals working in the Fluvial Merchant Marine. They work on board vessels, in confined spaces, in some cases for several days consecutively, in a total isolated environment where rest itself occurs in the workspace without family or social life. This makes the vessel an atypical place to work which may generate interference with the right organizational climate. The purpose of this paper is to verify the threats and the opportunities of the organizational atmosphere in which the crew of a vessel are inserted, analyzing the well-being and the safety of officers on board. This study was carried out by means of the results obtained from a questionnaire applied to the river sailors and its comparison with the organizational climate seen in situ
