The 'Code of Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seamen' provides guidance on improving health and safety on board vessels and articulates how statutory obligations should be fulfilled.

Intended primarily for merchant seamen of UK registered vessels, other than fishing and pleasure craft. It is a statutory requirement for copies of the code to be carried on board all UK ships, as copies must be made available to any seamen in the ship who request a copy, and therefore this is an essential resource.

Key Features:

Amendment 10 provides further guidance on existing safety points with the Code, these include:

  • Entry into enclosed spaces;

  • The operation of watertight doors;

  • Working at height and over the side, in line with new legislation;

  • Scaffolding;

  • Means of access;

  • Mooring, especially small vessels;

  • Handling of chemicals and other substances that can be hazardous to health including health surveillance.
