Code of Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seamen (eBook)

(Excludes any applicable taxes)

This Code (Consolitaded Edition 2010, inc. Amendment 10) is addressed to everyone on a ship regardless of rank or rating because the recommendations can be effective only if they are understood by all and if all cooperate in their implementation. Those not themselves actually engaged in a job in hand should be aware of what is being done, so that they may avoid putting themselves at risk or those concerned at risk by impeding or needlessly interfering with the conduct of the work. 12mb

The Code is arranged in sections which deal with broad areas of concern.


The introduction gives the regulatory framework for health and safety on board ships and overall safety responsibilities under that framework.


Section 1 is largely concerned with safety management and the statutory duties underlying the advice in the remainder of the Code. All working on board should be aware of these duties and of the principles governing the guidance on safe practice which they are required to follow.


Section 2 begins with a chapter setting out the areas that should be covered in introducing a new recruit to the safety procedures on board. It goes on to explain what individuals can do to improve their personal health and safety.


Section 3 is concerned with various working practices common to all ships.


Section 4 covers safety for specialist ship operations. 12mb
