Day of the Seafarer 2021 – Fair Future for Seafarers

Today, we welcome yet another Day of the Seafarer. IMO has chosen the 2021 campaign theme Fair Future for Seafarers.

Seafarers, the human element, remains one of the core fundamentals of the Green Award ship certification program. In the past years, various requirements have been added/updated specifically keeping the Seafarers well-being at heart.

Once again, whether we are in a pandemic or not: THANK YOU!

The topics covered in our audit checklist related to the human element include:

  • Fatigue Management
  • Safe operations onboard for crew’s health protection
    as well as for protecting our planet and owners assets
  • Good Health & Well-Being
  • Gender specific items to accommodate female seafarers onboard
  • Reduced Inequalities & Equal Opportunities
  • Anti-harassment and discrimination
  • Medical application – electronic device specifically to access digital platform to provide medical advice
  • Onboard drug and alcohol control


In the past year, we welcomed more new seagoing certificate holder companies. Welcome!”
