The development of OUCO is also dependent on the hard work and dedication of the maritime workers. On the occasion of OUCO Global Marine Festival, we Tribute to Maritime Professionals.
Next, we take you through the maritime professionals:
What is maritime professionals?
Maritime professionals are primarily a group of people working in the marine industry. They usually sail in the ocean, work on ships and offshore oil drilling platforms.
Maritime Professionals work in a wide range of jobs. In addition to their own job, they also need to be proficient in all work procedures on board.
Daily life of maritime professionals
Usually, the environment at sea is harsh，Just as marine equipment needs to be equipped with “Heave Compensation System”. Maritime professionals rely on themselves to maintain a strong balance.
In addition, due to the high mobility of work at sea, there are more uncontrollable factors. Therefore, the working hours of seafarers are often irregular.
Moreover, the work at sea is mainly arranged according to the weather conditions. As long as the weather is good, whether it is a holiday or late at night, workers need to rush to the corresponding area at sea immediately and work against time.
Problems with ship and mechanical equipment breakdowns can also arise unexpectedly. Therefore, maritime professionals maintain a high level of mental concentration on a daily basis.This professionalism, more worthy of our tribute to maritime professionals
The life of a maritime professionals
Maritime professionals may live and work at sea for months on end. For them, the monotony of life, the hardship of the working environment, and the loneliness of being away from their families are all difficulties to overcome.
Every day facing an endless sea, such a working and living state is really unimaginable for ordinary people who live on land all year round.
In addition, according to The Mission to Seafarers, with the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and the deteriorating situation in Russia and Ukraine, Maritime professionals’ jobs have been affected and their job satisfaction has been reduced to a minimum.
Due to the normalized blockade and control of cargo ports, they are not free to disembark and enjoy their weekends even when cargo ships are docked.
Therefore, OUCO calls on relevant organizations to pay attention to and improve the lives of Maritime professionals!
