By Sea and Coast | 07/03/2023

Singapore-based ship management company, Synergy Group, has introduced new personal protective equipment (PPE) for its female seafarers. The company commissioned Hercules Safety to manufacture the new gear that was designed by textile engineers in collaboration with female seafarers and maritime safety experts. The new PPE is intended to ensure maximum comfort and versatility for crew working in a maritime work environment where high standards of protection are required. It is currently being distributed to all female crew on over 60 Synergy-managed vessels worldwide on which female seafarers are currently deployed. The new PPE designs represent a clear commitment to supporting the role of women in shipping and illustrate why Synergy is making so much progress in its efforts to attract more women to the industry.
