Over the last couple of years, the club has been working on a variety of projects related to seafarer wellbeing, culminating in this special edition.
Seafarer wellbeing is a holistic concept combining physical, mental and social wellbeing, and our mix of articles reflects this.

This edition of Standard Safety approaches the well publicised issue of misdeclared container cargo incidents from a new perspective. The Standard Club’s analysis of past misdeclared dangerous cargo incidents shows that the container booking process needs to be reviewed and tightened. This guide sets out the findings from our analysis and what measures ship operators can put in place to safeguard their ships, reputation and crew.

In this edition, we cover:
ECDIS use on board ship
Navigation risk assessments
Safety awareness whilst performing routine tasks
MARPOL Annex VI – emission control measures approved and adopted during the recent MEPC meetings
The Standard Club’s PEME scheme – an update
Hernias – what they are and how to detect and prevent them

In this edition we cover:
Improving hazard awareness
Near-miss reporting and why it matters
Breaking the error chain, part 3
NPK fertiliser and self-sustaining decomposition
MARPOL Annex IV – Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Sewage from Ships
Disposal of solid bulk cargo residues and cargo hold wash water under MARPOL Annex V
