Guidelines for Fitness Onboard Merchant Ships

The ship, where seafarers work and spend all their time during a voyage, is the best place for health intervention.

These guidelines for shipping companies provide information on the importance of physical fitness on board merchant ships. They offer examples of sports activities that are suitable for the space, time and safety constraints of ships, and advise on how to facilitate and promote fitness on board vessels.
