Abstract

The objective of this research was to test whether there are differences between stress perception according to time spent on the ship, physical illnesses and adaptive coping strategies for Romanian sailors. So, in order to test these concepts CAPES questionnaire adapted in context was used. A number of 82 active sailors were involved in this research, which were divided into two groups, under 35 and over 36 years old. The majority of sailors from the over 36 year’s group held senior management positions while the group under 35 years had only 3 members in such positions. Research hypotheses were tested using t test for independent samples and ANOVA variance test, where it was observed that there are significant differences regarding the perception of stress factors between sailors according to age. For variables job satisfaction, recent travel status of the sea, physical illness coping styles and concern of circumstances affecting the life there are no significant differences.
