Seafarers and their families ensured of protection in cases of abandonment, death, and long-term disability

ILO member States have confirmed the amendments to the Maritime Labour Convention ensuring better protection to seafarers and their families in case of abandonment, death, and long-term disability.

wo years after an overwhelming approval at the 103rd International Labour Conference (ILC), it has been confirmed that the Amendments to the Code of the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC, 2006) , adopted in 2014, will enter into force on 18 January 2017.

Ratifying Members had been given until 18 July 2016 to formally express their disagreement with the 2014 Amendments. There was wide support for the new provisions, with just two Governments stating that they shall not be bound by the amendments, unless and until they subsequently notify their acceptance.

The 2014 Amendments establish new binding international law to better protect seafarers against abandonment and provide for compensation for death or long-term disability - two crucial issues for the shipping industry.

When they come into force, in January 2017, the 2014 Amendments will require that a financial security system be in place to ensure that shipowners ensure compensation to seafarers and their families in the event of abandonment, death or long-term disability of seafarers due to an occupational injury, illness or hazard. Mandatory certificates and other evidentiary documents will be required to be carried on board to establish that the financial security system is in place to protect the seafarers working on board.

festmachen 2017 05 thumb200 Im biblischen Sinne wird im Kapitel 4 der Kolosser auf die Verantwortung der Herren gegenüber den Knechten und gegenüber Gott hingewiesen. Wir alle haben einen Herrn, der uns stets erinnert, sich nicht als das Maß aller Dinge zu sehen und im Bewusstsein Gottes seine Mitmenschen, egal welcher Stellung und Herkunft, mit Achtung und Respekt zu begegnen
