    The critical questions at workplaces, realizing the importance of human resources for successful business, are related to enhancing utilization of human potential. How to develop workplaces, work tasks and social relationships at work to provide people with the best opportunities for self-fulfillment, growth and good performance? How to enhance individual resources and motivation at workplaces e.g. via leadership, so that employees will be creative, innovative, engaged, committed and productive at their work? And what can employees themselves do to make their jobs more engaging and meaningful? The topic of this course is to present some important concepts of positive psychology research at workplaces and to evaluate the added value of positive psychology at workplaces in practice.

    New and Old Maritime Industries:

    Future occupational health challenges

    27th – 29th of September 2022

    As traditional maritime industries evolve and newer industries become more established, what does the future hold?

    From the more established merchant shipping and offshore petroleum industry to the diverse fishing sector and in the newer areas of wind farms and fish agriculture – what are the current issues, what can we learn from each other, how can we cooperate and what challenges will the future bring?

    Main topics:

    * The worker
    * Regulation
    * Exposure
    * Climate

    Key to the course is identifying areas of common interest between the different sectors of the maritime industry, exploring lessons learnt that can be shared between sectors and looking for ways that we can cooperate moving forward.
