Key drivers towards developing resilient culture could be: Company commitment to the resilient culture program; Better ship to shore communication regarding implementation of resilient culture; Building recreational activities to reduce crew’s anxiety; Superiors resilience counselling with juniors. On the contrary, barriers could be: Multi-nationality cultures & different views for resilient culture; The financial cost on investing in a resilient culture program; Lack of cooperation & self-confidence to consult problems to supervisors. Therefore, company’s commitment should include allocation of funds to support seafarer’s welfare onboard”.
