Safety at Sea magazine wants to hear from you, the seafarer, about the most important issues impacting crew today.
 
This month's survey is on scrubbers. The countdown to compliance to 2020 sulphur cap regulations is well and truly on, and while scrubbers are likely to make up a smaller part of the low-sulphur mix than originally predicted there are still important maintenance and safety considerations for the crew that do encounter them. Safety at Sea wants to find out the experiences of crew already working on vessels with scrubbers, and the safety concerns for crew expecting to work on board vessels with scrubbers in the coming year.
All information you provide will remain anonymous. 
The results from the survey will appear in the July issue of Safety at Sea. The questionnaire will close on the 26th April.
