IMO: Seafarers’ Hours of Work and Hours of Rest
IMO/ILO Guidelines for the Development of Tables of Seafarers’ Shipboard Working Arrangements and Formats of Records of Seafarers’ Hours of Work or Hours of Rest
The Guidelines assist Administrations, shipowners and seafarers develop shipboard working arrangements and records of seafarers’ hours of work or hours of rest as required by the Seafarers’ Hours of Work and the Manning of Ships Convention, 1996. This publication also takes into account the provisions on establishment of rest periods for watchkeeping personnel contained in the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended.
Developed by a joint working group of the International Labour Organization and IMO, these guidelines are designed to help Administrations, shipowners and seafarers meet their obligations under ILO Convention N. 180 (Seafarers' Hours of Work and the Manning of Ships Convention) and IMO's STCW Convention, 1978, as amended in 1995. They provide a standardized table showing shipboard working arrangements, a standard format for records of seafarer's daily hours of work and rest and guidelines for monitoring compliance.
