This book contains guidelines to shipping companies on key health and safety topics, such as drug abuse, behavioural safety systems and threats to staff on passenger ships. The topics have been identified as important for the health, safety and welfare of seafarers and the onboard working environment.

This book offers comprehensive guidance on a wide range of health issues. It explains the occurrence, course and immunisation of diseases, in addition to guidance on implementing policies on blood alcohol percentage on board ships. The book is appended with internationally applicable company policies relating to unacceptable behaviour of passengers. Masters’ powers in this regard are explained in depth.

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.

The UK Chamber of Shipping is pleased to present these guidelines to a global audience and hopes that they will help to make a positive difference both to company health and safety performance and seafarer health, safety and welfare.
