In case that forms are to be forwarded to the office at fixed intervals, it is reasonable to forward same at the next convenient port, unless otherwise instructed by the Safety Manager. A grace period of 25% of the time interval specified is acceptable for the completion of the report onboard. A grace period of thirty (30) days delay to collect the form at the office is justified. In cases exceeding the above period, a reminder should be forwarded to the vessel. 8.4 Inspections All inspections related with SMS (i.e. including maintenance inspections, Internal Audits Superintendent inspections etc.) should be carried out at prescribed intervals. In cases where the inspection cannot be carried out (e.g., there is no time, unavailability of personnel, strict vessel voyage requirements) a report should be submitted to the Safety Manager explaining the reason of the inability to respond to SMS requirements. The provision of section 8.3 is applicable regarding the time window of 25% of the prescribed interval for any inspection required by this management system. Regarding the inspections for MLC compliance the following procedure should be followed, unless otherwise required by the inspector.

CREW MANAGEMENT KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS The Company should set Key Performance Indicators in order to monitor and evaluate the performance of the Company’s procedures related to Crew Management. Moreover the Company should use KPIs for defining, measuring and reporting information on operational performance in order to: 1. boost performance improvements internally 2. provide an efficient communication platform of ship operation performance to internal and external stakeholders The Safety & Quality Manager should be responsible to monitor and maintain the KPIs set by the Company. 9.1 Lost Time Injury Frequency This KPI expresses the company’s ability to safeguard crew against injuries and fatalities. These guidelines are intended to address the collection of data for injuries occurring to seafarers serving onboard company ships. This is the number of Lost Time Injuries per unit exposure hours. The most common unit in respect of LTIF is one million man hours. Lost Time Injuries (LTIs): Lost Time Injuries are the sum of Fatalities, Permanent Total Disabilities (PTD), Permanent Partial Disabilities (PPD) and Lost Workday Cases (LWC). (LTIs = Fatalities + PTD + PPD + LWC) 01_0 (MLC Implementation).doc Page 6 of 11 SQE MARINE MLC TRAINING MANUAL MLC IMPLEMENTATION Issue Date January 13 As an example, if there were three lost time injuries during a year in which the fleet personnel had 5,000,000 exposure hours then the LTIF would be calculated as follows: 9.2 Assessment of Work Related Accidents Accidents resulting in injury whilst assigned to a company ship then the accident should be recorded as Work Related Accident or Non Work Related Accident according to the following: 1. If the accident took place onboard the ship it should be recorded as a Work Related Accident 2. If the accident took place off the ship but while being engaged in work related activity then it should be recorded as a Work Related Accident 3. If the accident took place off the ship but while being engaged in non work related activity (personal, recreational, social etc) then it should be recorded as a Non Work Related Accident 01_0 (MLC Implementation).doc Page 7 of 11 SQE MARINE MLC TRAINING MANUAL MLC IMPLEMENTATION Issue Date January 13 9.3 Decision Tree for Incident Classification 01_0 (MLC Implementation).doc Page 8 of 11 SQE MARINE MLC TRAINING MANUAL MLC IMPLEMENTATION Issue Date January 13 10.

All persons who are assigned duty as officer in charge of a watch or as a rating forming part of a watch and those whose duties involve designated safety, prevention of pollution and security duties shall be provided with a rest period of not less than: a) a minimum of 10 hours of rest in any 24-hour period; and b) 77 hours in any 7-day period. The hours of rest may be divided into no more than two periods, one of which shall be at least 6 hours in length, and the intervals between consecutive periods of rest shall not exceed 14 hours. The rest period requirements described above need not be maintained in the case of an emergency or in other overriding operational conditions. Musters, fire-fighting and lifeboat drills, and drills prescribed by national laws and regulations and by international instruments, shall be conducted in a manner that minimizes the disturbance of rest periods and does not induce fatigue. Watch schedules shall be posted where they are easily accessible. The schedules shall be established in a standardized format as per SMS When a seafarer is on call, such as when a machinery space is unattended, the seafarer shall have an adequate compensatory rest period if the normal period of rest is disturbed by call-outs to work. The seafarers shall receive a copy of the records pertaining to them, which shall be endorsed by the master or by a person authorized by the master and by the seafarers. Any exceptions from the above requirements, i.e. 70 hours per 7 day period as per STCW A-VIII/1 paragraph 9, shall be in full compliance with the vesselâ€™s flag state legislation.

Ensuring full compliance with minimum hours of rest Assist crew by providing training and support so they may recognize and deal with the effects of fatigue Emphasizing the relationship between work and rest periods to ensure that adequate rest is received; this can be accomplished by promoting individual record keeping of hours at rest or worked, using IMO/ILO recommended formats in “IMO/ILO Guidelines for the Development of Tables of Seafarers’ Shipboard Working Arrangements and Formats of Records of Seafarers’ Hours of Work or Hours of Rest” Establishing on-board management techniques when scheduling shipboard work and rest periods and when scheduling watchkeeping practices and assignment of duties in a more efficient manner Verify that watchkeeping personnel are getting adequate rest Using rested personnel to cover for those travelling long hours to join the ship and whom are expected to go on watch as soon as they arrive on board (e.g. allowing proper time to overcome fatigue and become familiarized with the ship) Creating an open communication environment, by making clear to the crew members that it is important to inform supervisors when fatigue is impairing their performance and ensuring that there will be no recriminations for such reports Improving shipboard conditions to ensure that when there is an opportunity to sleep, crew members can take advantage of it without interruptions, e.g. by scheduling drills and routine maintenance functions in a manner that minimizes the disturbance of rest/sleep periods Assigning work by mixing up tasks to break monotony and to combine work requiring high physical or mental demand with low-demand tasks (job rotation) Scheduling potentially hazardous tasks for daytime hours Ensuring that shipboard conditions, within the crew’s ability to influence, are maintained in a good state (e.g. maintaining the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning on schedule, light bulbs are replaced, sources of unusual noise are taken care of at the first opportunity) Re-appraising traditional work patterns and areas of responsibility on board to establish the most efficient utilization of resources (such as sharing the long cargo operations between all the deck officers instead of the traditional pattern and utilizing rested personnel to cover for those who have travelled long hours to join the ship and who may be expected to go on watch as soon as they arrive) Promoting supportive relationships on board (good morale) and dealing with interpersonal conflict between seafarers Establishing shipboard practices for dealing with fatigue incidents and learning from them (e.g. as part of the safety meetings) Increasing awareness of the long term health care of appropriate lifestyle behavior (e.g. exercise, relaxation, nutrition, smoking and alcohol consumption) CAUTION REDUCED SAFETY DUE TO FATIGUE WILL INCREASE THE RISK OF ACCIDENTS THAT MAY LEAD TO LOSS OF LIFE, ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE AND ECONOMIC COST. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

This can be hearing loss that gets worse over time, damage caused by sudden, extremely loud noises, or tinnitus (permanent ringing in the ears). The exposure limit values are A daily or weekly personal noise exposure of 87dBA or A peak sound pressure of 140dBC It should be noted that the exposure limit values take hearing protection into account. IMAGE IMAGE Use any hearing protection given whenever this or similar signs are displayed. Always use hearing protection such as earmuffs and earplugs following these rules: Comfort When protection feels comfortable and stays in place, people will wear it. Communication Be sure to protect hearing and allow clear communication with co-workers. Convenience Provide easy access to the right hearing protection for the job. Caring Demonstrate that hearing protection is an important part of life â€” not just another on-the-job rule. Use of the following noise control methods is suggested whenever it is possible: Isolation: Minimizes noise by reducing vibrations caused by machinery or equipment. Vibrationabsorbing materials are used such as rubber mounts, pads, or springs. The type of material for an application is based on weight, vibration frequency, and desired degree of isolation. Barriers: Minimizes noise by blocking sound transmission through the use of high mass, resilient, or limp mass materials. Damping: Minimizes noise by adding mass to the vibrating structure or by connecting it to a surface that does not want to vibrate. Absorption: Minimizes noise with resonators and open-celled porous material, which converts sound energy to heat.

Vibrations resonate throughout the hull structure and the entire crew can be affected by being subject to whole body vibration. Also, use of hand tools may cause handarm vibration. Crew must report effects of whole body vibration such as: Physiological Cardiac rhythm increases Respiration rhythm increases Blood circulation increases Vasoconstriction Endocrine secretions Central nervous system affected Comfort and Performance Pain Nausea Vision problems Posture Movement and coordination decline Force Perceptions altered Vibration can be controlled by the following ways: Source Control Reduce vibration intensity Avoid resonance Path Control Limit exposure time Reduce vibration transmission (structural dampening) Use vibration isolators Receiver Control Use vibration isolators Adapt posture Reduce contact area Use any personal protective equipment (PPE) such as protective gloves whenever vibration risk signs are displayed.
