The COVID-19 related restrictions on crew changes have a major impact on the health and well-being of seafarers. Although some Governments have taken action to alleviate the situation, more than 200,000 seafarers are still waiting to be repatriated, many remaining on board long beyond the end of their original contracts.
We would like to invite you to take part in a short survey on health protection measures on board ships in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The objective of this survey is to gain further understanding of the health protection measures introduced by companies onboard their ships during the pandemic, and inform the development of best practices for companies and seafarers. The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous. The survey will close on 31 August.
