Seafarers Handbook

18th February 2020

We are proud to announce the launch of the Seafarers Handbook – Medical and Lifestyle Information for the seafarers who come to our port.

Life at sea brings its own challenges, and knowing how to be healthy and safe while working and living aboard a vessel can make a big difference to ones life. This handbook has been created with the intentions of helping Seafarers to live and work safely, lead a healthy lifestyle (both physically and mentally), and know when to recognise the signs of things that might need medical attention. It also covers who and where to contact should any help or advice be sought.

The handbook is available in English, Chinese, Cantonese, Indonesian, Korean and Spanish. (Please click the language to open and download a PDF version of the handbook).

Printed copies are available from the Lighthouse Seafarers Mission and the Port Authority to any vessel or seafarer entering the Falkland Islands’ waters.
