Pre-Employment Medical Scheme
Although crew illness claims do arise, many may have been avoided if the seafarer had undergone a comprehensive pre-employment medical examination by a reliable specialist clinic. In order to reduce incidents and ensure the good health of crew, North runs two enhanced pre-employment medical programmes, one in the Philippines and one in the Ukraine.
