Human rights code

A code of conduct and self-assessment tool developed to protect the human rights and welfare of the world’s nearly two million seafarers has been launched. The initiative aims to support a safe, healthy and secure onboard work environment and goes beyond the ILO Maritime Labour Convention to focus on the full spectrum of seafarers’ rights and wellbeing, from fair terms of employment and minimum crewing levels to the management of grievance mechanisms.
