The Merchant Navy Training Board’s (MNTB) Careers at Sea campaign is looking for support from vessel operators for its “Tidal Tuesday” initiative, taking place across the country during National Careers Week (5th – 10th March).
Tidal Tuesday (6th March) will aim to inform schools, colleges and youth groups across the UK of the opportunities at sea available to young people and the lifelong career prospects offered by the maritime industry.
Firms involved in the sector can participate the event by conducting a vessel or office tour, taking part at a local careers fair, giving a talk or simply raising awareness via social media.
The MCA have finally published and uploaded the on-line version of the Revised Workboat Code on the Gov.UK website. It can be found in the Small Craft Codes section under Statutory Guidance and is titled; "The Workboat Code, Edition 2".
Keen observers of the MCA website will have noted recent revisions to and the re-issuing of their guidance on 3 important legal areas of risk assessment.
This month we spoke to Damian Crowley, Managing Director of MARITAS (Maritime Training and Assessment Services) LTD, Chair of the National Workboat Association’s Training Group and a Fellow of the Nautical Institute.
