13 November 2014:Ebola is an escalating humanitarian and health crisis that poses risks to all seafarers in the global maritime industry. However, it can be prevented with proper education and precautions.

With that in mind, Videotel is pleased to offer a training package consisting of our newly released video, “Ebola – Staying Safe”, and an accompanying digital workbook, free to every ship and seafarer worldwide.

Produced in association with Steamship Mutual P&I Club and a panel of medical and subject matter experts, this is the definitive maritime training package for this critical health threat facing mariners. For your convenience, it is available free to download for use on board your vessel(s) by all crewmembers.

The training package covers:

• What Ebola is and how to recognise the symptoms
• How crew can protect themselves from Ebola
• The steps Masters, shipowners, and ship managers can take to keep crew members safe
• Strict health protection guidelines that must be followed

Videotel is offering this free package through two channels:

• All Videotel rental subscribers will receive the package free with their annual update

The video has also been automatically delivered to all KVH IP-MobileCast subscribing vessels and is now available for viewing on board as a part of TRAININGlink.
