Online guide to safely operating a commercial vessel during the COVID-19 period

Domestic commercial vessel operations vary widely across Australia and the implications of COVID-19 add a further degree of complexity, so the Australian Maritime Safety Authority has produced a simple how-to guide that outlines some of the risks and considerations, as well as issues such as managing extended periods at sea and the potential impact of port visits.

You’ll find some useful links to border closures as well as tips on assessing crew health prior to departure and social distancing onboard.

The issues and risks associated with commercial vessels will vary dramatically for all operators, but this guide will provide a foundation for developing a plan to better manage your operations and crew safety during the COVID-19 period.
