Our seafarers are the essential workers who keep the maritime industry moving. Every person working at sea has the right to safe and secure working conditions. The Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) along with Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) and a working group of industry stakeholders, including RightShip, have developed a seafarer welfare Code of Conduct. Prior to formal implementation, we invite you to take part in a questionnaire that will highlight your commitment to improve welfare for seafarers.

Watch the below video to find out more about the Self-Assessment Tool and what you we will cover together in this training module:

We invite all ship owners and managers to self-assess and track their progress to improved crew welfare standards. Shipowners are encouraged to understand the following below before getting started.

  • Your participation shows your dedication to improved crew welfare

  • All submitting companies will have a crew welfare badge on their vessel page and company page within the RightShip Platform once the self-assessment has been completed

  • The information you provide will not be made public

  • The questionnaire was developed by the SSI and IHRB with input from RightShip

  • The crew welfare self-assessment doesn't impact your existing safety and sustainability results

Showcase your commitment to seafarers by completing the Crew Welfare Self-Assessment, for DOC holders.
