NEW CREW WATCH OUT NOW – FOCUS ON BURN INJURIES
Published: 30 June 2020
Over the past few years, the People Risks team have seen an increasing number of cases where crew on board ships have suffered a variety of burn injuries. In some extreme and tragic cases, the seafarer has lost their life following the accident. Working together with the Loss Prevention team, we have looked in detail at the cases and set out advice and best practices to help avoid such injuries in the future, as well as providing some practical advice on simple first aid. We have also produced a BSafe poster which we encourage Members to send out to their ships and display. Crew Watch is available on our website and is being sent out in hard copy with the posters.
