Seafarers work in exceptionally demanding conditions. The demanding nature of the work and schedules, and longer than usual times on ships, demand special expertise of our clients and occupational healthcare.
Here at Maresan, our staff are professionals with deep experience and expertise of the special traits of seafarers’ occupational healthcare. Apart from caring for illnesses, we want to make a special investment in preventive working capacity and maintaining clients´ health. Our aim is a happy, healthy client who enjoys his or her job and has the energy to keep doing it.
