We have received that there are new safety training requirements for crew required by the Transport Operations (Marine Safety) Regulation 2004.
These training requirements will improve the knowledge and skills of all crew to assist in the safe operation of the ship.
“From September 2006, the owner or master of a commercial or fishing ship must ensure every person in the ship’s crew has completed the required safety course depending on the length of time the person has been employed.”
