Every ship appoints a ship safety officer to handle important safety issues related to the ship and the crew.
The safety officer acts as the safety advisor on board ships and ensures that all requirements related to health and safety are met.
On the basis of risk assessments and investigations, the ship safety officer makes recommendations to the master on health and safety matters. It is the duty of the safety officer to look out for potential hazards and means of preventing incidents on board ship. This Safety Officer on Board online course further discusses these topics.
The Safety Officer on Board online course is based on the Guidelines given in the STCW A-II/2 & A-III/2 and IMO Model Course 3.11 (Marine Accident & Incident Investigation).
In addition, upon successful completion of the safety officer courses online, it is possible to request a hard copy of the Safety Officer on Board certificate (not included).
