These reported outbreaks represent just a small proportion of the total disease burden attributable to ship-acquired disease. For every notified and reported case listed in outbreak reports, there are likely to be orders of magnitude more cases that go unreported. Ships can have significance to public health beyond just their role in ship-acquired infection. For example, ships can transport infected humans and other vectors, such as mosquitoes and rats, between ports and, therefore, act as a means of national and international disease transfer. If proper control measures are not in place, ships are particularly prone to disease outbreaks. s and common food and water supplies. Such conditions are favourable to the spread of infectious diseases. The inevitable publicity that comes along with a disease outbreak aboard ship can seriously impact financially on the ship owners and those relying on use of the ship for transport or leisure.
Becoming ill aboard ship can be particularly dangerous because the ship may be isolated from medical centres. Furthermore, once an outbreak has been reported aboard ship it may not be permitted to dock. It is estimated that 1.2 million seafarers are employed on general cargo vessels. Many spend months at sea, sometimes in remote regions of the world. Cargo ships on long voyages are isolated communities. Good sanitation conditions on vessels are crucial both to the health of seafarers and to the shipping industry’s ability to attract and retain competent employees.

ActivSure disinfecting fluids from EcaSafe can help prevent and combat outbreaks. The fluid is safe to use and can be applied directly or in vapour form while passengers and crew are present..
EcaSafe recommends that you follow manufacturers recommendations for medical apparatus. MediGuard, ProGuard and/or Industrial solutions disinfecting fluids can be used as an alternative to aggressive chemicals. They can be applied on surfaces to control pathogens and prevent the spread of infections.
ActivSure has 2 different types of cleaning fluids. The first is generated in small quantities in the ProGuard unit. It is capable of making 1.2 litres of fluid in 10 minutes. This is usually sufficient for most small cleaning tasks such as in the galley, restaurants, bars etc.
The second type of cleaner is produced in the larger industrial units. If the vessel operator has already purchased an industrial unit for their water treatment or hygiene management then the same unit can produce most of the their cleaning fluids. They don’t need to buy anything extra.
