CREW WELFARE WEEK
A unique event bringing together stakeholders and experts in the shipping industry to discuss the challenges, hot issues and initiatives towards crew welfare onboard
The COVID-19 has marked a new chapter in the nature of seafarers’ work. This pandemic, which has been challenging for the whole world, has also pushed seafarers to their limits as they are working long and hard, facing unprecedented circumstances in order to keep trade flowing. Now, more than ever, seafarers need to be acknowledged fr their valuable role, designated as key workers to ensure priority vaccination and access to safe transit and travel. As a result the whole industry has shed its attention to seafarers; wellness, well-being and prosperity or in other words their welfare.
As seafarers play a vital role for a safer and sustainable shipping, the topic of Crew Welfare is now more topical than ever. With that in mind, we are pleased to announce the 2nd edition of Crew Welfare Week as an industry initiative to discuss and embrace the role of the seafarers in shipping.
Crew Welfare is on the top of the agenda of several industry stakeholders with calls from the Industry by the Neptune Declaration on “Seafarer Wellbeing and Crew Change” supported by more than 850 organisations of all types across the industry setting aside the regulatory requirement in many standards (ILO MLC, TMSA, DryBMS).
With a full week of events, in the event page and the www.safety4sea.com we would like to bring together many of the stakeholders to discuss a number of topical issues. We hope that you will find the program interesting, and we look forward to engaging you in any way with the course of events!
