IADC Reveals Third Nomination for the Safety Award 2019

IADC today announced third nomination running to receive the Safety Award 2019 award – Van Oord and Boskalis agree: MedAssist gives needed medical support to ships at sea.

The MedAssist Skills Application provides offline step-by-step instructions for basic medical skills and procedures on board a ship when there is no doctor present or the ship is at a remote location.

The app is a low-cost way for the captain to improve his crew’s medical care when they are far away from professional medical staff and facilities.

It also helps maritime employers to comply with international safety regulations and legislation for medical care.

The initiative for this long-distance medical support grew from the experiences of doctors at the Emergency Control – Maritime Training (ECMT) – Training Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

At ECMT each year around 500 captains and officers from various companies, including Boskalis and Van Oord, are trained to perform medical procedures.

The requests from Boskalis, Van Oord and other clients for digital training and support materials for their ships, led to the development of this “Skills app”.
