Coronavirus - Protection On Board

June 2020

Our previous video on coronavirus provided guidance to seafarers on how to build mental resilience to cope with the understandable worries and anxieties that arise from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Whilst such worries and anxieties can persist even when the vessel is on passage and far away from sources of infection, the ship will eventually arrive at its port of discharge or loading. At this transition, seafarers will be understandably concerned about the real threat of infection arising from the inevitable interaction with shore-based personnel during cargo operations.

The third video in our series “Protection on Board”  addresses the threats that arise when the vessel reaches port, and identifies the measures that should be taken and the procedures to be followed to reduce the risk of seafarers contracting the virus during their vessel’s time in port.

“Coronavirus – Protection On Board” was produced by Marine Media Enterprises with the support of Columbia Ship Management, Petronav Ship Management, The International Chamber of Shipping, MCTC Marine Ltd, Seaworld Management and Steamship Mutual.
