Seafarers can now undergo training on Occupational Health and Safety on board their respective vessels using a new on board course. 

SEA HEALTH & WELFARE and Seagull Maritime AS together have developed the new onboard course for members of the safety committee. This course covers the basic international requirements laid down under the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006, Regulation 4.3 – Health and safety protection and accident prevention and Guidelines for implementing the occupational safety and health provisions of the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006, Section 5.7.

The Danish Maritime Authority has approved this course for Danish-flagged vessels. 

The objective of this course is to give seafarers the necessary training and knowledge required to carry out their duties as a member of the safety committee. The course will connect theory and practice, in cooperation with fellow seafarers on board to promote a safe and healthy working environment on ships. Thus, making a positive, sustainable footprint by reducing the need to travel and accommodate for courses ashore. 

The course is available for purchase by shipping companies for their respective ships from August 6, 2018. For more details about the course and prices, please click here
