All people working on board ships have a valid right to perform their working duties without suffering any bullying or harassment. However, the sad truth is that many seafarers become victims of these two. The shipping companies are responsible for handling all relevant policies covering the elimination of the bullying and harassment in any form on board their vessels. In addition to that, seafarers themselves should ensure that none of these take place on the ships they work.
They should be committed to produce the materials drawing attention to the issues in this regard and highlighting the potential actions to be taken. Needless to say that both bullying and harassment and acceptable and must not be tolerated on board any ship; that is why two world recognized organizations ICS and IWTF have released this booklet. The intention of the authors of the document was to provide the general guidance on this problem and on the measures that shall be taken in order to eliminate shipboard harassment and bullying.
The authors cover the identification and proper reporting of the incidents that have been noticed, for their further investigation and resolution. The communication and awareness are also considered important and therefore addressed in a separate chapter.
