As part of your on board Safety Management System, do you have a ‘plan’ in writing?

If not and you are part of a Port State Control, this could be classed as a deficiency….

Primarily developed to cover seasonal related gastro infection onboard, these ‘Best Practice’ papers are now more important than ever and should form part of every yachts’ Safety Management System.

It comes down to common sense but it means you have a plan!

✅ Do you have a medical questionnaire to complete?

✅ Do you know where your on board isolation area is?

✅ What happens with hours of rest with other crew members?

✅ Do you know WHAT you need to report and to WHOM?

This Plan has been developed using the MCA, APHA and HPA’s (now PHE) “Guidance for the Management of Norovirus Infection in Cruise Ships”, published in 2007, as a basis.

It is meant to provide the Masters of our managed Yachts with the necessary guidance when faced -primarily- with an outbreak of a -often seasonal- gastro-intestinal infection on board.

However, in light of recent epidemics of other infectious diseases such as Swine Flu, Ebola, Zika, and most recently Coronavirus, this plan can hopefully provide some initial guidance around how to prevent and combat an outbreak, should they manifest themselves on board the vessel.

Naturally, the control measures this Plan contains may have to be adapted to the specifics of the infection it is trying to manage.

Do you have a plan on board?

Do you need help implementing such a plan?

Why haven’t you got one on board already?
