Guidelines for Food Safety on Merchant Ships and Fishing Vessels

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 cover the basic requirements for food safety on merchant ships and fishing vessels, which everyone on board needs to be aware of. They offer the basis for training courses on health care and hygiene in all maritime training settings.
