SAFETY FIRST AND SAFETY ALWAYS!
I am a seafarer and I am a proud transport worker. The ship is my worksite, my home and my refuge amidst the storms and troubles that winds up my path at sea. Besides, life onboard as a seafarer has never been easy. Every job brings various risks and hazards which might cause accidents if not properly addressed and prepared for. And so, safety must always be the top priority. With proper procedures, correct personal protective equipment and healthy mind and body, we can create a safe environment. From the normal days, to berthing at ports and even voyaging the rough seas, safety plays a major part. It has been a part of my life as a seafarer. I work for myself and for my family and finishing a contract safe and sound is what my family and I pray for. That’s why safety has become my way of life. In the end, it is not just about us, but for every worker be at sea, in the air and on the roads/lands, safety first and safety always is a must.
