Description: Ebola – a serious maritime security issue Ebola is a severe, often fatal illness. It is thought to have originated in East and Central Africa, but recently shifted focus to West Africa, where it triggered the largest Ebola outbreak in history. In August 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared it a ‘Public Health Emergency of International Concern’ (PHEIC). Even though the risk of contracting Ebola during a visit to affected countries is very low, and infected people usually feel so unwell that they cannot travel, the fact that the illness has a long incubation period and is difficult to diagnose in the early stages means that people who have contracted the virus could carry it to other countries. International transport is therefore under the spotlight, as it could enable this highly contagious and potentially fatal disease to spread. Ebola therefore represents a serious maritime security issue, and shipowners, managers and Masters have a responsibility for taking measures to prevent the illness from being passed on by crew or passengers, as well as a duty of care for protecting everyone on board.
About this programme:
Ebola – Staying Safe is intended as a timely introduction to the dangers of Ebola, and how it could affect ships scheduled to visit ports where the disease has been reported. The programme is aimed at crew, shipowners and managers. By doing this training, they will understand: • the nature of the disease: its symptoms, how it is treated, and how it spreads • the steps they can take to avoid becoming infected with Ebola • what to do if someone on board starts to develop symptoms • what Masters can do to protect everyone on board • what shipowners and managers can do to help • the importance of everyone playing their part in helping to keep themselves and others safe from infection This workbook summarises the key points made in the video and includes recommendations for further reading, websites of organisations that have issued guidance on Ebola or may be of assistance, and assessment questions that can be used to reinforce the learning.
