We believe safety isn't an accident - you have to work proactively to maintain a safe workplace and to train a safe workforce. That is why we encourage our crew to better themselves by attending safety courses offered through organazations such as
Not only do we encourage our crew, we step up to the plate and pay for our crew to attend. Further, a more trained crewmember will move up in the pay scale aboard the vessels. It's a win-win-win.
Leap Year - An Extra Day to Eat Healthy!
Fish is a good source of protein and, unlike fatty meat products, it’s not high in saturated fat. Fish is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids benefit the heart of healthy people, and those at high risk of — or who have — cardiovascular disease. Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids decrease risk of arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats), which can lead to sudden death. Omega-3 fatty acids also decrease triglyceride levels, slow growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque, and lower blood pressure (slightly).
Go fish – The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least two times/servings per week.
