A culture of adjustment, evaluating the implementation of the current maritime regulatory framework on rest hours
The next "Knowledge for Life" WMU Alumni Webinar will take place on 9 November 2020 at 15.00 -16.00 CET. The webinar is open to anyone who wishes to register, provided space is available, and there is no charge to participate.
Launching of the WMU Research Report: " A culture of adjustment, evaluating the implementation of the current maritime regulatory framework on rest hours"
The webinar will present the outcome of the study evaluating the implementation of the current maritime regulatory framework on the rest and work hours, conducted by the World Maritime University (WMU). Funded by the ITF Seafarers' Trust, the research collected the experiences and views of maritime stakeholders such as Seafarers, Port State Control Officers (PSCOs) and representatives from shipowners' organizations, industry organizations, maritime non-governmental organizations, and casualty investigators.
The research stresses, inter alia, the increasing normalization of deviance in work/rest hours record-keeping and underlines the limited detection capacity and enforcement of the current inspection regimes, in particular, of Flag State Inspectors and Port State Control Officers (PSCOs). The situation leads to a culture of adjustment.
To launch the final report, this webinar offers maritime stakeholders and attendees a unique opportunity to discuss the issues related to the implementation of work/rest hours regulations in shipping.
