Industry-wide survey calls on seafarers and shore-staff to share their COVID-19 workforce insights.
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected us all. Seafarers and shore staff have had to adapt and change the way they work. In the short term, this has already affected thousands of seafarers with some stranded on vessels far past their sign-off dates, and others remaining at home on long-term unpaid leave.
Shore-staff have also had to adapt - by working at home, perhaps taking unpaid leave, and others by assuming on extra duties.
The new normal that is evolving from the pandemic could mean significant changes to systems, processes, and ways of working. Lloyd’s Register has joined marine industry partners to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected, and continues to affect the maritime industry and what it could mean for the future.
The aim of this survey is to understand the efficacy of COVID-19 measures and processes that have been put in place, assess how the maritime workforce has been supported during this challenging period and gather insights about the level of care and welfare given by marine employers. Most importantly, we hope to build an understanding of what’s gone right and what may have gone wrong so we can share these lessons with the entire industry.
The survey will run from June 25 until late September and the results will be shared later in the year.
