Ensuring the health and safety of your crew members aboard commercial vessels is our top priority, and the Pre-Embarkation
Medical Examination of seafarers plays a vital role in achieving that goal.
This examination serves to identify any diseases that could pose a risk to seafarers during their time at sea, including infectious diseases that could spread among the crew.
We understand the importance of maintaining high standards and adhering to international guidelines in conducting these medical examinations.
That’s why we are committed to developing and implementing rigorous quality assurance and improvement measures. By doing so, we can ensure that every examination is carried out consistently and reliably, providing accurate results and by doing so minimizing the risk of onboard medical incidents.
To accomplish this, we follow the mix of comprehensive guidelines given – by IMO and medical authorities. These guidelines cover various aspects such as medical history, physical examination,laboratory tests, and vaccinations.
Additionally, we work closely with shipowners and P&I clubs to expand upon these guidelines and provide the best possible care for your seafarers.
Identifying any medical conditions during these examinations allows us to recommend prompt and appropriate action to provide treatment.
We also take the opportunity to counsel seafarers on any necessary restrictions or precautions they need to take while at sea. By doing so, we significantly reduce the risk of accidents, injuries, or illnesses that could impact their ability to perform their duties, jeopardize the safety of the ship, or disrupt its operations.
In our commitment to continuous improvement, we have analyzed the medical cases of our clients’ vessels over the past years. The results have shown that potentially up to 25% of these cases could have been avoided with proper measures in place.
We understand the operational and financial consequences that can arise from such situations, which is why we are here to help.
In summary, the pre-embarkation medical examination of seafarers is an indispensable part of safeguarding the health and safety of crew members onboard commercial vessels.
We prioritize delivering high-quality examinations that meet international standards, backed by our commitment to ongoing quality assurance and improvement. The outcomes of these examinations allow us to provide timely treatment, minimize risks, and maintain a healthy and productive crew on board.
