SEAHEALTH invites to free closing event at SIMAC

Tuesday, June 17, 2014, at 11-14 SIMAC, Graaesvej 27, 5700 Svendborg holds a free seminar on MLC, diet and hygiene.
Project NEPTUNE has for two years been funded by the Danish Maritime Fund for the development of diet and competences in Danish ships. The project has got good help from shipowners to develope courses, guidelines and inspirational material for the implementation of the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006). The project has also helped to lift the food on board and greater awareness of the importance of diet to health. This effort continues and at this seminar SEAHEALTH will mark a milestone and send the "depeche" on to the shipping companies, and want to thank for all contributions.

Project NEPTUNE is searching for test-vessels

Are you and your shipping company wondering how you can live up to the new health demands in the MLC 2006? This is an excellent (free) opportunity to test the project tools, whilst focusing on your own everyday practices and the possibilities in them. Furthermore you have the opportunity to offer constructive criticism and identify what works and what does not, so that the tools are effective in addressing the challenges they are meant to.

New guide for food supplier contracts

When making a contract with a supplier or when the ship places an order with a supplier, it is a good idea to be aware of the issues described in this guide. SEAHEALTH has produced a guideline that explains how the shipping company can make demands to its suppliers, thereby ensuring a decent quality, and increased transparency of the cooperation between the company and the supplier.

Help us by sharing tips and tricks from your everyday life at sea

There is nothing like being able to ask a colleague for advice. But as a cook alone on board, that can be difficult. On this page, cooks, assistants and anyone who makes food share their knowledge and experience from the galley. All you need to do to participate is describe your own tips and tricks and send them to SEAHEALTH.

NEPTUNE and the MLC 2006 Convention

The ratification of the new MLC 2006 Convention (ILO) challenges the maritime industry with increased focus on environment and health.

Failure to meet the requirements of the Convention will be directly reflected in future PSC inspections and influence the companies' costs.
