The Maritime Logistics Team (Tristar Eships) of the Tristar Group celebrated 10 days in advance the annual Day of the Seafarer (DotS) with a Health Check-up for crew members and port workers based at the Port of Fujairah (PoF). Doctors from the Fujairah Port Medical Centre also conducted a lecture on ‘Heat Stroke: Causes, Symptoms, and Emergency Management’.
A training session on ‘Restricting Enclosed Space Entry’ was facilitated by Capt. Nazeef Siddiqui, Head of Coastal, Tristar Group. PoF Deputy Harbour Master Eduardas Ringis said that seafarers are invaluable assets, while Tristar Eships CEO Tim Coffin reiterated Tristar’s commitment to the welfare of sea staff, observing the impact that mental and physical health have on each other, and the importance of both to general well-being.
Meanwhile, the International Maritime Organisation is asking seafarers to share a picture of the marine environment using the hashtag #OceansWorthProtecting when the DotS is celebrated on June 25.
