The ILO/MLC Convention establishes seafarers’ rights to decent conditions within almost every area of their working and living environments and includes such aspects as employment agreements, minimum age requirements, hours of work or rest, payment of wages, paid annual leave, repatriation at the end of contract, onboard medical care, the use of licensed private recruitment and placement services, accommodation, food and catering, health and safety protection, accident prevention and seafarers’ complaint handling.
Due to their necessity in the sound operation of the shipping industry, the main objectives and key concepts of the Convention should be carefully outlined.
In this regard, our Training Center offers courses that aim to consolidate the insight of trainers into said Convention and ensure better quality and consistency in inspection systems worldwide.
