"Merchant Navy" as the name suggests , is a world of huge mercantile shipments and transportation through various sea routes of he world.

Further more, over a past few years , couple of International regulations have been coming in to force , making the seafarers lives better than the earlier days. These regulations have imposed certain good effects such as :
- Regulation controlled training and certification standards to enable the follow up of Code Of Safe working Practices.
- Regulation controlled working and rest hours for seafarers.
- Regulation controlled salaries and wages to seafarers.
- Improvised safety standards to ensure the Safety Of Life At Sea.
- Reduced contract tenures.
- Seafarers work place health and life insurance borne by the shipping companies.
- Permission by the shipping companies to carry families on board.
- Increased security measures which have considerably reduced the threat of seafarers being vulnerable to some mishaps of safety threats.
However , the above
features given in general but some of them may depend on the shipping
