The Seafarer’s Personal Hygiene

  • Y. Stenko


The concept of personal hygiene involves not only the care of a seafarer’s body but also the care of his cabin. Each individual should have a sound knowledge of the hygienic measures necessary to maintain a healthy condition of the skin, mouth, nose, head, hands and nails as well as the anal and genital regions. Cabin hygiene implies clean berth and linen, pure air and adequate lighting. In addition it is necessary to know about the special requirements of hygiene in tropical areas and in very cold climates.
