Coronavirus - Crew Change

July 2020

Restrictions arising from COVID-19 have made it extremely difficult for crew changes to be undertaken, with the unwelcome result that many seafarers have remained onboard their vessels far longer than their contracts originally contemplated. Thankfully these difficulties are slowly easing with the result that seafarers are increasingly able to return home to their loved ones and enjoy the rest and relaxation that they so richly deserve.

“Coronavirus – Crew Change” examines the procedures that need to be followed during both embarkation and disembarkation in order to ensure that these operations are undertaken safely and the risk of infection appropriately controlled.

This film was produced by Marine Media Enterprises with the support and assistance of Columbia Ship Management, Cyprus Port Authority, Cyprus Shipping Chamber, Anglo Eastern Ship Management, Lavar Shipping, Singapore Shipping Association, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, Petronav Ship Management, The International Chamber of Shipping, The Nautical Institute, MCTC Marine Ltd, Seaworld Management and Steamship Mutual.
