Workrest launches it’s brand new app, the most advanced and user friendly solution for logging hours of rest and monitoring compliance.

With over two years in development and 16,000+ real-world hours logged, Workrest launches with industry leading functionality to enable captains and crew to get more done in less time.

The solution is made up of two parts:

  1. An app for crew to log hours in seconds, online, offline and on any device.

  2. A vessel dashboard for captains and heads of departments to monitor compliance, digitally sign off and export monthly time sheets.

Combined, captains and crew shave hours off each month chasing time sheets, signing documents and filling in spreadsheets. 

“The app is great! Thank you very much, all running very smoothly. I took great pleasure in filling our reports for the last month!” Luke Schumacher, Chief Mate, MY Harmony III.    

A specially designed algorithm is built into Workrest to provide the industry's most accurate compliance calculations to MLC, STCW and US OPA legislation, with non compliance notifications advising captains how and when non compliances have occurred.

Tim Fletcher, founder and CEO of Workrest comments,

“Workrest was born out of frustration with the usability or lack thereof, in today’s on-board solutions for such a common yet overlooked problem. 

We were driven to provide a simple solution with powerful applications to greatly reduce the time spent logging hours and monitoring compliance. 

After such extensive development, Workrest launches with tried and tested functionality and we’re hugely excited to be able to roll out the solution to the wider industry.” 


Workrest is available to download now in both the app and android store.

    Having previously used 'Watchkeeper' we changed over to the 'Work/Rest' system which allows the crew to use their own IOS devices to keep their records up to date. Easy to use and a 'one stop' Dashboard for shore management.
