This book provides a methodical approach to the appraisal of ships within their own Class and within their trade using statistical and historical data as working tools but, most importantly, recognising the intended use of the valuation.
This publication contains guidelines to shipping companies on key health and safety topics: alcohol misuse, drug abuse, hepatitis, HIV and AIDS, smoking in the workplace, behavioural safety systems and violence, aggression, verbal abuse and threats against staff on passenger ships. The topics have been identified as important for the health, safety and welfare of seafarers and the shipboard working environment.
This book is intended to give those considering entering the marine superintendency discipline an understanding of the role of the Ship Superintendent.
