The International Seafarers’ Welfare Awards give seafarers the chance to say thank you to companies and organisations who have offered them high quality welfare services and facilities. Seafarers have both nominated their welfare heroes and judged the entries this year, and the winners will be revealed at this special ceremony.
By raising awareness of best practice, ISWAN hopes to encourage improvements in existing welfare provision and promote new services and facilities for seafarers around the world. This is part of ISWAN’s on-going work to promote implementation of the International Labour Organization’s Maritime Labour Convention (MLC, 2006), which includes welfare obligations and recommendations.
The International Seafarers’ Welfare Awards 2019 taking place during LISW19 are generously hosted by Inmarsat, the Headline Sponsor for the event. The awards are also sponsored by the International Chamber of Shipping, Wrist Ship Supply, Garrets, MF Shipping Group, ShipMoney and the International Christian Maritime Association.
