“From equipment failure to chemical exposure, to hypothermia, maritime workers and veterans always face considerable risks. My team and I developed Maritime Injury Center as a resource for maritime workers and veterans to learn about health and safety, including detailed information on rules/regulations, procedures, and laws.
Maritime Injury Center provides injury coverage for seaman under the Jones Act. The act is designed to ensure employers provide a safe work environment for all seaman (crew – captain). The Jones Act protects maritime workers under U.S. laws and applies to any worker performing full or part-time work on a vessel operating under U.S. law.
