Crew Health & Hygiene: Putting Crew First
Maintaining a clean and hygienic working environment for seafarers requires the right products and team effort - everyone has a part to play.
What Crew Needs
There are various aspects to maintaining cleanliness and hygiene on board. Here are the four main areas to focus on:
CleaningEnsure that you have a sufficient range of cleaning products made for galley and accommodation areas. Easy-to-use equipment such as mixing stations can help improve efficiency and even save on single-use plastics.
DisinfectionCleaning is incomplete without proper disinfection. Disinfectants or anti microbial products can give you protection from pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2.
Personal HygieneHaving liquid hand soaps and alcohol-based sanitizers available on board helps promote good hygiene habits. Other essentials like PPE packs and laundry products further provides all-round protection all day, every day.
Sewage TreatmentProbiotic cleaners based on powerful microorganisms can prevent blocked pipes and bad odor. It's important to get the right products for the right applications - this helps avoid the use of toxic cleaners for your toilets and sewage systems.
Staying clean and safe is important.
You are not only protecting yourself, but also your colleagues at work and the people around you.
