Tropical Exposures at Sea

Working as Crew on a superyacht is a unique experience which brings a wealth of opportunities… as well as challenges. One area that needs careful consideration is crew health exposures. The tropical environment poses a risk for exposure to many types of illnesses including respiratory, blood-borne, and food and water-borne, both onboard and on-shore. Discussion will include common risks, signs and symptoms, treatment measures, as well as prevention techniques. Learn how to use personal protection equipment
used to safeguard yourself from these tropical exposures – including preventative travel planning and assistance resources available to crew.
