5 MLC, 2006 BACKGROUND INFORMATION The aim of the Maritime Labor Convention, 2006 is to provide an international minimum standard for maritime living and working conditions. MLC, 2006 applies to all seafarers irrespectively of their nationality and to all ship owners and flags. There shall be no more favorable treatment of ships of non-ratifying States. MLC, 2006 forms the ‘fourth pillar” of the international regulatory regime for quality shipping, complementing the key Conventions of the International Maritime Organization (IMO): SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) MARPOL (Prevention for the Pollution from Ships) STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watch-keeping for Seafarers) EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting MLC,2006 CONVENTION

6 APPLICATION OF THE MLC, 2006 CONVENTION MLC, 2006 applies to all ships that are: Commercially operated Privately or publicly owned No fishing vessels No warships EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting MLC,2006 CONVENTION

7 MLC, 2006 ENTRY INTO FORCE MLC, 2006 has been adopted by the ILO on 23 Feb 2006 MLC, 2006 will come into force on 20 Aug 2013 EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting MLC,2006 CONVENTION

8 Minimum age Medical certificate Training and qualifications Recruitment and placement Seafarers’ employment agreement Wages Hours of work and hours of rest Entitlement to leave Repatriation Compensation for ship’s loss or foundering Manning levels Career and skill development and opportunities for seafarers; employment Accommodation and recreational facilities Food and catering Medical care on board and ashore Ship-owner’s liability Health and safety protection and accident prevention Access to shore-based welfare facilities Social security On-board complaint procedures MLC INSPECTION The MLC addresses the following elements to be certified: EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting MLC,2006 CONVENTION

9 MLC-Risk Assessment & Pilot Methodology MLC, 2006 AND RISK ASSESSMENT MLC, 2006 AND RISK ASSESSMENT EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

10 MLC, 2006 & RISK ASSESSMENT MLC, 2006 and Risk Assessment MLC 2006 Guidelines ILO Guidelines to Port State Control Officers European Parliament Directive for Vibration Classification Societies Checklists EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

11 Structural features of ship, including means of access and asbestos-related risks Machinery Effects of extremely low or high temperature of any surfaces with which the seafarer may be in contact Effects of noise in the workplace and in shipboard accommodation Effects of vibration in the workplace and in shipboard accommodation Effects of ambient factors in the workplace and in shipboard accommodation, including tobacco smoke Special safety measures on and below deck Loading and uploading equipment Fire prevention and fire fighting Anchors, chains and mooring lines Dangerous cargo and ballast Personal protective equipment Work in enclosed spaces Physical and mental effects of fatigue Effects of drug and alcohol dependency HIV/AIDS protection and prevention Emergency and accident response Guideline B4.3.1 – Provisions on occupational accidents, injuries and diseases Matters for the assessment of risks and reduction of exposure: EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

12 The assessment of risks and reduction of exposure to the previous mentioned matters should take account of the: Physical occupational health effects Chemical and biological occupational health effects Mental occupational health effects Physical and mental health effects of fatigue Occupational accidents MLC, 2006 AND RISK ASSESSMENT EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

13 The measures should include assessment of risk and reduction of exposure levels to noise in all accommodation and recreational and catering facilities, as well as engine rooms and other machinery spaces. MLC, 2006 AND RISK ASSESSMENT EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

14 Basic requirements ……………………. Risk evaluation is required for on-board occupational safety and health management (taking into account relevant statistical data) ……………………. Documents related to ship’s on-board occupational safety and health policy and program, to confirm that: …………………………….. It includes risk evaluation, training and instructions for seafarers …………………………….. Examples of deficiencies ………………………………………… Risk assessments are missing ………………………………………… ILO Guidelines for Port State Control Officers under the MLC, 2006 EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

15 Exposure to vibration risks The employer shall be in possession of an assessment of the risk and shall identify which measures must be taken. The risk assessment shall be recorded on a suitable medium and it may include a justification that the nature and extent of the risks related to mechanical vibration make a further detailed risk assessment unnecessary The risk assessment shall be kept up-to-date on a regular basis DIRECTIVE 2002/44/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

16 References to Risk Assessment Does the ship-owner conduct risk evaluation in relation to the management of occupational safety and health? Is there an assessment and reporting program on board to assess the risk and reduction of exposure levels to noise in all accommodation, recreational and catering facilities, engine rooms and other machinery spaces? Is there an assessment and reporting program on board to assess the risk and reduction of exposure to vibration in all accommodation, recreational and catering facilities in accordance with the guidance provided by the ILO code of practice “Ambient factors in the workplace”? Confirmation that the information on risk evaluation performed by the company is available on board Classification Societies Checklists for MLC On Board Inspections EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

17 MLC-Risk Assessment Challenges & Pilot Methodology RISK ASSESSMENT OVERVIEW EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

18 RISK ASSESSMENT / RISK MANAGEMENT RISK ASSESSMENT RISK MANAGEMENT A process for identifying hazards and assessing the risk (likelihood and concequence) A process for dealing with the assessed risks through the developement of cost effective countermeasures Risk Assessment / Management EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

19 Risk Definition Risk = Likelihood x Consequence R = L x C RISK: “The uncertainty of something adverse happening” Is a combination of the Likelihood and the severity of the Consequence of a specific accident. LIKELIHOOD: Is an actual or estimated number of occurrences of a hazard causing an accident per unit of time CONSEQUENCE: Is an outcome of an accident. EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

20 PILOT METHODOLOGY MLC-Risk Challenges & Pilot Methodology EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

21 Hazard Identification - Types of Hazards Structural changes/deformation/ship conversion Main engine poor maintenance or change Shaft misalignment or change Fixtures and fittings failure or change Air-conditioning systems and ventilation system failure or change Machinery or equipment maintenance failure Extensive use of vibrating and noisy tools Exposure to engine room without ear protection Crew sensitivity in noise or vibration RISK ASSESSMENT FOR THE CONTROL OF NOISE &VIBRATION EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

22 Consequences Health problems Hearing impairment Nervous fatigue Head, thorax, pelvis problems Physiological effects Psychological effects RISK ASSESSMENT FOR THE CONTROL OF NOISE &VIBRATION EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

23 Control Measures Class ship build up rules Ship’s drawings Annual class inspections Vetting inspections Master/Safety Officer inspections Dry dockings SMS procedures for periodic maintenance and repairs Placement of any noisy machines in isolating areas Minimization of human intervention in areas of noisy machines Instruments materials used to construct bulkheads, paneling and sheeting, floors and joining are suitable for the purpose and conducive to ensuring a healthy environment. Cabins arrangement to ensure the best possible isolation Elastic mounting of engines Elastic holding of pipes or dampers Isolating fittings PMS RISK ASSESSMENT FOR THE CONTROL OF NOISE &VIBRATION EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting

24 Additional Control Measures Training/awareness campaigns Pre-joining and where needed periodical medical examinations Vibration & noise meters to be used for measuring during superintendents visits on board RISK ASSESSMENT FOR THE CONTROL OF NOISE &VIBRATION EF GLOBAL Marine Consulting
