Officer's Meeting - Date uploaded : Feb-15-2018
Officer’s meeting held at Tiara Hotel last February 15, 2018 for an open discussion with our seafarers. Encouragement of our seafarers to take the Gap Training in order for them to reach the standards of the industry therefore making them world class, reiteration and ephasize to our seafarers that PSC is an international body and should not be taken for granted. Port state control is the inspection of foreign ships in national ports to verify that the condition of the ship and its equipment complies with the requirements of international conventions and that the ship is manned and operated in compliance with these rules. Failure to comply with PSC may result to harsh sanctions that could affect hte ship's voyage. And lastly, this meeting is to assure our seafarers that we hear and would want to learn more on how we can improve their situation on board. Augustea’s plan is to have a designated place to hear them and how we can immediately resolve or help them while they are on board.
