|D O W N L O A D|
These Guidelines were officially released by ILO to provide required assistance for proper implementation of the provisions contained in the MLC 2006 related to the occupational safety and health. The MLC Convention of 2006 was adopted in the course of the special maritime session which was held in Geneva. The main goals of the convention are to ensure worldwide protection of seafarers rights and also to establish a field for the states and owners of the vessels committed to providing due conditions of living and working for the crew members.
OSH, standing for the occupational safety and health, implies anticipation and recognition as well as evaluation and further control of any hazards that can arise in, or from, the working place impairing the health, safety and wellbeing of the employees. The OSH is mainly focusing on the assessment and managements of the occupational risks, applying all necessary protection and prevention measures.
This is a very complex topic and it covers so many activity areas and standards that frequently require some adjustment to stay in line with the latest technological changes and researches in the field of potential health risks. This document provides information about fundamental OSH principles and responsibilities of the authorities, owners and seafarers, risks involved, accident reporting and investigation, and many other important topics.
