SAN is a liaison organization between unions and maritime employers, and was established in 1955. The board has one chairperson, seven permanent members and two co-opted members, all with specialized knowledge of the marine work environment. Here you will meet three of them.

Anette Wugk 
Permanent member
Anette Wugk has been a permanent member of SAN since 2007. She normally works as assistant personnel manager at TT Line and is responsible for personnel and work environment issues for employees ashore and at sea.
To have everybody (officers, personnel, and employees ashore) on your side in work environment activities is something which Anette Wugk sees as a requirement for really achieving results. The issues which land on her desk often affect people in different areas and require joint efforts.
Anette Wugk has a degree in personnel science from Lund University. After a placement with TT she was offered a job in 1990 with the shipping company, where she has remained ever since.
Jens-Ole Hansen
Permanent member

Jens-Ole Hansen is the shop steward for Seko/Seafarers at Stena Line and has worked full time with union issues since 1984. His choice of profession was easy since his father was a fisherman, and he first went to sea in 1967.
He says that although the work environment onboard has generally become a lot better over the years, there are still many issues that need addressing. Above all, he wants to see psychosocial issues being given more attention. He also feels it is important to emphasize that everybody onboard is responsible for the work environment, not only officers.
He was voted as permanent member of SAN at the start of the 1990s after being a deputy for many years.
Mikael Huss
Permanent member

Mikael Huss has been responsible for work environment issues at the Merchant Marine Officers’ Association since the beginning of the 1990s. In 2003 he was voted as permanent member of the SAN board after many years as a deputy.
He went to sea at the early age of 16 as a deck hand, and then continued his studies, finally taking a diploma as marine engineer. Mikael Huss has long practical experience of work environment at sea and has worked at Broströms and Wallenius.
Mikael Huss also promotes work environment issues internationally through the IMO (International Maritime Organization). The work progresses very slowly there, he says.
