||The objective of this questionnaire survey was to assess the self-rated health status and the main characteristics of seafarers' working conditions. A total of 6461 seafarers in 11 countries responded. In general, the seafarers' self-rated health was good, but it declined significantly with age. Seafarers from South-East Asian countries spent longer time periods at sea, and had lower numbers of officers and older seafarers than found among seafarers from western countries. Most seafarers worked every day of the week and on average for 67-70h a week during periods of 2.5-8.5 months at sea. Other findings are discussed.
