Understanding the effects of COVID-19 on seafarers Webinar

AMSA holding a special research webinar on Thursday 10 December to discuss the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on seafarers

The work of seafarers during the COVID-19 pandemic has been critical to ensure the global supply chain of essential goods and equipment. However, the recognition of seafarers as key workers is often being neglected, adding challenges to their regular occupational safety and health issues. This prompted researchers around the world to assess the impact of the pandemic on the well-being of seafarers.

This webinar offers participants a unique opportunity to engage with a variety of international researchers and professionals who are examining the effect of COVID-19 on seafarers.

Five panels of researchers and professionals in this field will contribute to the discussion.
