Coronavirus- How to Beat It

IMO 2020 Sulphur Regulations – Achieving Compliance

Title of the Month:

Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos is still found on many ships, even though it has been banned under the SOLAS Convention since 2011. It is safe if left untouched, but if it is disturbed, exposure to its microscopic fibres can lead to incurable cancers and other diseases.

This training package deals with the risks of asbestos, where it may be found on the ship, how it should be managed for the safety of everyone on board, and what to do if the material has been disturbed.

Asbestos Awareness shows how seafarers can find out whether, and where, asbestos might be found on board, by consulting the ship’s Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) and/or the Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) which may be part of the SMS.

Seafarers' Mental Health and Wellbeing

Positive Changes for Seafarer Mental Health and Wellbeing

Seafarers face unique working conditions which can put them under a lot of stress, with fewer opportunities for relief than they would be likely to find on land.

Our Seafarers’ Mental Health and Wellbeing package focuses on the positive things seafarers can do to help themselves and their fellow crew members.

What the Training Covers

  • This training package explores what seafarers can do to improve their mental health and wellbeing so that they can deal better with the challenges of life onboard.
  • The training consists of a video (23 minutes) and comes with Facilitator Notes including a sample plan on how to run a training session.
