The IMO received a report of ICS and ITF entitled ''Outcome of the surveys on health protections measures onboard ships in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic''. The ICS survey aims to gain further understanding of the health protection measures introduced by companies on board their ships during the pandemic.
The survey was completed by 83 companies, operating approximately 1,775 ships, and the ITF survey was completed by 538 seafarers.
In addition to the protection measures implemented, the survey also wants to inform about the development of best practices for companies and seafarers.
