Initiated by International Labour Organisation (ILO) and entered into force in August 2013, the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006) sets, for the first time, most comprehensively, seafarers’ rights to decent work and living conditions. MLC 2006 has come to be recognized as the ‘Fourth Pillar’ among IMO Conventions (SOLAS, MARPOL and STCW Conventions being the other three).
Delivered in interactive, seminar mode, this course focuses on practical aspects relating to implementation of the Convention by building upon examples and cases arising from inspections. The course aims to enhance the planning and preparations by the multiple agencies involved in recruitment and placement of seafarers.
Members of senior, middle and junior level management teams including HR managers from shipping and ship management companies; seafarers at the management levels, managers and staff working in RPSL agencies.
