The Code of Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seamen is intended primarily for merchant seamen on United Kingdom registered vessels. Copies of the current edition of the Code must be carried on all UK ships other than fishing vessels and pleasure craft. A copy must be made available to any seaman in the ship who requests it, in accordance with the Merchant Shipping (Code of Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seamen) Regulations 1998.
The Code details the regulatory framework for health and safety on board ship, safety management and statutory duties underlying the advice in the Code and the areas that should be covered when introducing a new recruit to the safety procedures on board.
All purchasers of the Code (2004 Edition, ISBN 0115526129) are required to have this amendment to bring their copy up-to-date.
