Compendium on work safety and health in sea traffic and fishing.

The “Seafarer's companion” has been written by professionals for professionals, and is designed to help managers and crew members recognise and assess hazardous situations. While, in practice, it cannot replace independent, responsible actions by the individual, it can help prepare for everyday or hazardous operations and situations so that the right action can be taken. Its modular structure enables you to quickly find concise information, as well as numerous illustrations describing the essential concepts.

The notepad function allows the most important information on events relevant to security, especially accidents, to be recorded. Texts and images may serve as memory aids when preparing accident reports.

Experience, knowledge and the abilities of each individual continue to be crucial to ensure occupational health and safety on board!

BG Verkehr uses this handbook to help entrepreneurs and managers to fulfil their occupational health and safety responsibilities on board, and to establish a uniform level of safety standards.

The “Maritime handbook” relies on your feedback and suggestions, so we expressely ask for your involvement! Please contact us at the following email address:
