    Top 5 dangers of working on a cruise ship


    Working on board a cruise ship certainly has its perks. However, as those who undertake such work will already know, it can be very hard work as well. There may also be potential dangers of working on a cruise ship that many people may not even think about, unless they do this kind of work all the time. Are you aware of the likely dangers or hazards that might potentially be involved?

    How serious are the dangers?

    1. Slips. Slipping over could mean you break a wrist or one or more fingers, or have a worse accident. Cleanliness is very important on a cruise ship, as a bumpy journey could make a slippery floor an even greater hazard than it might otherwise be.
    2. Trips. This follows on from the point we made above. In a sense, a hazard that could cause someone to trip might potentially be even more dangerous if it was allowed to remain in place on a cruise ship.
    3. Falls. Have you ever experienced a fall of any kind? Now imagine falling over on a cruise ship, given the possibility that exists of a bumpy journey, or the chance to go overboard. Thankfully, such things are rare, thanks to the diligence and dedication of the crew.
    4. Not having the right equipment to do your job. Every job done on a cruise ship will require its own training, and in some cases, people will need equipment to do their job properly. If you don’t have the right items, this could potentially put you at risk.
    5. Working in confined spaces. One of the dangers of working on a cruise ship would undoubtedly involve working in confined spaces. This can lead to muscular issues, not to mention the potential for gas, water or other substances to flood into the area being worked in.

    How safe are you?
