Report Potential Injuries ImmediatelyPDF


From time to time we have addressed the topic of reporting your shipboard injuries immediately. We hate to beat a dead horse, but if we brought up accident reporting every month, it still would not be enough! Reporting your injury immediately means right then, as soon as it happens. 24 hours later is often too late! We understand it is human nature to keep working and hope that the pain “will just go away” but that mindset will hit you in the wallet down the road!

Question From The Bridge

Is there an email address I can send my general legal maritime questions to have them answered in the Question From the Bridge?
