People working within the maritime sector should be able to work safe and healthy, regardless of gender, age, cultural background or other differences. A psychological safe and inclusive maritime workplace culture for all seafarers and maritime professionals has a positive effect on operational safety and security on board. It is also essential to the successful integration of vulnerable and marginalized groups in support of diversity, equality, equity and inclusion.
As education and training are critical elements of a holistic framework of change.
The Commonwealth of Dominica Maritime Registry submitted a paper to the eight session of IMO’s Sub-Committee of Human element, Training and Watchkeeping with a proposal to extend the delivery of the Personal Safety and Social Responsibility (PSSR) training from four to eight hours. The additional time will deliver content to establish behavioural norms that supports a psychologically safe and just culture in the maritime sector.
