Quench Hydration Campaign

We have developed a campaign to provide seafarers with the right tools and information to maintain adequate levels of hydration.

The ‘Quench’ Hydration Campaign is part of our Seafarers’ Health Information Programme (SHIP). There is currently little research on the hydration of seafarers but experience suggests that dehydration at sea can be common. Physically demanding jobs, working in hot environments and conscious decisions to drink less if toilet breaks are inconvenient are all factors which can put seafarers at risk of dehydration.

We ran a pilot campaign on four Nakilat LNG tankers which aimed to assess the effectiveness of materials designed to encourage fluid intake. Data on the drink types and volumes consumed by a total of 73 seafarers was gathered over a 28-day period. The full report and promotional materials can be downloaded below.
