Congratulations to Mark Paragas the Lead Steward on the Deep Explorer who was awarded a Safety Award for his quick action in switching off Dryer No 7 in the main laundry when he heard an unusual noise coming from it.

He reported the noise to the electrician who isolated the dryer and later confirmed an issue with the bearings.

The laundry is on of the most vulnerable areas on a vessel with regards to fire and Mark showed good awareness of the importance of the observation and also diligence in reporting it immediately to the appropriate personnel.

Congratulations again Mark, and keep up the good work!
