“The Danish Maritime Authority has initiated a study of seafarers’ perception of administrative burdens. The survey aims to include seafarers of all nationalities. The project will contribute to:
1 A better understanding of seafarers’ view on administrative work onboard
and, hence, provide basis for initiatives aiming to
2 Improve seafarers’ job satisfaction by reducing administrative burdens

The survey will be an important contribution to clarifying how administrative burdens influence seafarers daily working life. You can answer the survey by clicking on the link or scan the barcode below and fill out the survey electronically. The survey is completely anonymous and no personal information will be disclosed.

It is very important for members of InterManager that as many seafarers as possible participates in this survey. Please make sure YOUR SEASTAFF is informed and encouraged to participate.

I am very pleased to advise that we had a great outcome of our HELP OUR MEMBER message sent on Friday. Within 6 hours !!! we were able to locate 3 suppliers being in position to provide required tail shaft
This clearly show the strength of our association. I would like to thank all of you who responded and provided information. Believe we should be proud of our sense of SOLIDARITY

19 – 20 November, 2012 Amsterdam, the Netherlands European Ports & Shipping 2012
Exploring PPP opportunities in the European ports and shipping industry
Over the years, maritime transport has emerged as a critical contributor to the trade competitiveness of the European Union. Consequently, for many countries with an adequate coastline, maritime infrastructure development has attracted significant investments, thereby influencing the pace, structure and pattern of development in the country. The opportunities for private and foreign investment in port infrastructure projects across the EU in coming years are immense. Governments have already planned huge investments to meet the growing port infrastructure needs and a large number of port infrastructure projects are coming. The European Ports and Shipping Conference will bring together an international audience where you will have the opportunity to meet, network and benchmark with key representatives from the ports and shipping industry and discuss how to overcome your challenges in today’s competitive economic environment.

Lloyd’s Register provides new DVD to promote safe boat transfers
Short film to educate employees about the best ways to minimise risks when working over water
Lloyd’s Register has issued a new short film entitled Safe Boat Transfers to help provide marine surveyors with comprehensive instructions on how to safely transfer between two vessels at sea.
Working over water and, in particular, boat transfers, during which surveyors switch from a transfer vessel to the boat they are surveying, is a very high-risk activity. The film, originally developed for Lloyd’s Register employees, aims to raise awareness about the associated risks and hazards, and to provide instruction for every stage of the transfer.
It is hoped that Safe Boat Transfers will help to significantly reduce the accidents associated with boat transfers.
Receiving your copy:
The DVD can be ordered from the Lloyd’s Register webstore: http://www.webstore.lr.org.
