The environment on board ships is important mainly for the crew's health, work efficiency and well-being. Indoor air quality and thermal comfort are important components of the environment that has not been studied so much on the ship.
The aim of this project is to evaluate risks related to occupational exposure to chemical substances and particles for persons working on board Swedish ship, develop monitoring methodologies for the environment on ships and recommend actions for healthy indoor environment that can be used on both existing vessels and as a basis the construction of new vessels. Assessment of indoor environment consists of building technical inspection, measurements of indoor environment parameters, chemical pollutants in indoor and outdoor air in the incoming, concentration and chemical composition of aerosol particles and microbial status of the ship's indoor environment.
