This publication contains guidelines to shipping companies on seven key health and safety topics. They have been reviewed regularly by the Committee and are fully up to date. Three of the subjects are specifically referred to in the ILO Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC) as areas that competent authorities should address in their national guidelines for the management of occupational safety and health on board ships, whilst the guidelines on behavioural safety systems will be of interest in connection with company safety management systems. All the topics have been identified as important for the health, safety and welfare of seafarers and the shipboard working environment. Company policies on these subjects can contribute to the implementation of measures to ensure continuous improvement.
