Dear Pilots/Master/Deck Officers/Deck Cadets,

This is Apple Yeung, a student studying Bachelor degree of Maritime Operation Management at Solent University. I am currently working on a Project researching the topic Preventing Collision Caused by Human Factors in Hong Kong Waters. I write this to invite you to participate in this survey. This survey is part of my completion of degree program.

phew!!!! I just wonder, having perused the conditions of this survey, and the strict order in which each question is asked, and its appertaining to Hong Kong waters, and not navigational skills in general in confined waters and harbours, by the subject??? who's name has the term 'apple within it'' what is being asked of one here?
Is it sensitive personal information, such that the alleged author of the research piece, can go forth and multiply in a financial gain, or is this a true academic piece of research???
IMO is the body on an international level that regulate, or recommend regulations and guidance on all navigational problems, and the experience of each of the IMO delegates is the 'guiding light' towards solving piloting and navigational problems??? is it not, I ask respectful, where is there a read only of the said requested survey form, so one can correctly assess the risks of the information one is about to divulge??
Answers on a post card Please to IMO London HQ

Members,

My opinion is to ignore this. You cannot view the form without giving info on
each page.

It looks dubious to me as David has stated. If the poster gives a read only of the form then members can decide.

Otherwise do not reply to the survey.

Dear all,

I am actually a student from Hong Kong. This is my first time to work on a survey like this. I apologize for any deficiency in the invitation and in the survey. I would be very grateful if you can participate in this. If you are not convenient, just ignore it.

Thank you again for viewing this post.

Please give me a chance to correct it.

This questionnaire have 18 questions, and all of them focus on the relationship between human factors and Collision within Hong Kong waters.
The questions are the following.

A critical question before the questionnaire: Have you ever navigated within Hong Kong waters?

Section A: Personnel Characteristics
1 What is your age? 18-25 26-35 36-45 46-55 56-65 Above 66
2 How long have you been working on board? i.e. Navigational Experience 1-10
Years 11-20
Years 21-30
Years 31-40
Years Above
41 Years

1. Do you agree that there are lots of marine accidents within Hong Kong waters?
2. Do you agree that Collision is the major type of marine accidents in Hong Kong?
3. Do you agree that Human Factors is the most relative cause that contributes to Collision within Hong Kong waters?
4. Do you agree that Fatigue takes the great part of human factors which cause Collision within Hong Kong waters?
e.g. Alertness reduced

And I feel sorry again for this kind of mistake. I will learn from it and do it better in the future.
