Food is crucial to maintaining the health and morale of crews. Without safe, nutritious and appealing food, seafarers would not be able to perform their duties effectively on board ship. The Training Record Book for Ships’ Cooks is the first global resource to help ships’ cooks demonstrate competency and record their training experience as they develop their careers. It is based on the International Labour Organization (ILO) Guidelines on the training of ships’ cooks, which implements the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC) Regulation 3.2.
Maritime security is an increasing concern for the shipping industry and security threats present real challenges to the entire global supply chain. This book provides a comprehensive guide to maritime security, setting out clearly the security threats, statutory requirements and guidance on how to conduct a thorough threat assessment for a voyage. A model ship security plan is also provided along with guidance on how to complete it.
This first edition title replaces two previous publications: Maritime Security: Guidance for Ship Operators on the International Maritime Organization (IMO) International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code (2003) and Model Ship Security Plan (2003).
