Today we are going to talk about Pre-employment and re-employment medical examinations. Unfortunately the importance of these tests is under estimated, left for the responsibility of the crew member, treated as a formal requirement, which eventually might lead to very costly claims onboard and/or even direct threat to the crew member’s life.

Cargo ship or a large cruise liner are very different places to work on, but looking at these 2 places from a perspective of a crew member health and safety actually we can see some common features. The risks for the wellbeing and health, the reasons of signing off board the ship and the need to get good quality treatment in a home country, in many cases, is very similar.
Maritime professions are considered dangerous occupations. Being a member of the crew on board of the ships increases the chance of physical injury and loss of health, argues Mrs. Elena Donina Glukhman, Project Manager, Development & Cooperation Worldwide at AP Companies Global Solutions.
