Hanseaticsoft adds new Rest Hours software

Germany-based Hanseaticsoft has launched an updated version of its Rest Hours module as part of its Cloud Crewing maritime software system, designed to assist in managing crew schedules and seafarers’ working hours.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Rest Hours module centralises related data in the Cloud, allowing crews to enter their own rest hours rather than relying on someone else to collect and enter the data. This means the seafarers can access their own data and ensure the correct times have been entered.

The new module has recently been certified by Lloyd’s Register as compliant with its guidelines and standards, as well as the international MLC 2006 Fitness for Duty guidelines.

“Technology is streamlining onboard processes, enabling companies to easily connect on and offshore teams so they can collaborate on every aspect of crew management and administration,” said Alexander Buchmann, managing director of Hanseaticsoft.

“Our updated module is helping to improve the wellbeing of seafarers, ensuring decent working conditions and preventing fatigue on ships – all of which are key factors in achieving a reliably working ship, as well as an efficient crew and officers, and better ship safety.”

“Now crews can keep track of their time on and off duty easily and efficiently, and managers can monitor this in real-time. We’ve implemented all the standards necessary to be compliant with global industry rules, enabling shipping companies to avoid any problems with Port State Control,”

In 2017, Hanseaticsoft was selected to work as part of an EU-funded ‘e-healthy ship’ project, to provide software systems that can support the physical and mental health of crews at sea.

Currently the company says it is collating data from four ships on their crews’ health, and their understanding of health issues. This data will be used to develop an e-health platform which will contain central information and an admin ‘pool’ for seafarers to manage illnesses on board as well as administer medications.

The overall aim is increase the independence of crew members in being able to access relevant health information and to know how to react in certain cases of illness or injury even without a doctor on board. The e-health platform is expected to be launched at the end of 2021.{/mprestriction}
