Training for the Maritime Labour Convention 2006
When the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 comes into force it will replace 40 existing conventions and 29 regulations. It will provide seafarers with fair terms of employment and guarantee them safe, secure and decent living and working conditions on board ship. Shipowners will benefit from having a clear, consistent set of standards with which all must comply.
Once the Convention is in force all ships which trade internationally must meet its requirements, whether their flag States have ratified it or not, ships will be subject to inspection. Inspectors’ powers are the same as those under ISM or MARPOL, including the power to detain ships that do not comply.
Videotel has worked with experts on the Convention from IMEC, ISF, Nautilus, The Bahamas Maritime Authority and other organisations to develop training materials for all those who will be affected by the Convention – shipping company managers, ships’ Masters, manning agents, port State control inspectors and government officials from flag States and labour supply countries.
To learn more about how we can help you to understand the Convention, what it means for you and your organisation or ship, and what you must do to achieve compliance, please watch the video below.
