Protecting the Rights of Maritime Workers and Passengers
The Dangers of Maritime Work and Company Negligence
Maritime careers are arduous and hazardous, particularly for those that spend long stretches of time away from shore. Crew members can be put in perilous circumstances due to extreme weather patterns, extended work hours and malfunctioning appliances. Passengers on private yachts or cruise ships also suffer the risk of misfortunes while aboard these vessels - whether it is an incident caused by slippery surfaces, turbulent waters or faulty contraptions. Nevertheless, if employers take appropriate precautions, these disasters could easily have been avoided! Regrettably, it's not always the case that companies are taking proper precautions. In some cases, they may fail to maintain their ships or lack in providing sufficient training to crew members. Furthermore, many businesses also pressure employees beyond what is physically possible for them which can often lead to significant injury. Consequently, negligent practices like these could cause harm both passengers and crewmembers alike.
