Every year on June 25th, the world celebrates Day of the Seafarer which highlights the importance of seafarers in our lives. The day is not only about acknowledging the contributions that they have to the world economy and civil society, but also the risks and personal costs they bear within their chosen profession.
2018 campaign of Day of the Seafarer is about celebrating seafarers and informing the world about how and why seafarers are indispensable to everyone. With that in mind, the tagline for this year’s event is “Seafarers Wellbeing”. The theme was also chosen to coincide with last year’s theme of mental health.

METL’s Henderson training facility ran the first of its newly scoped courses on Thursday the 26th of April. This course was the first to be delivered under our newly approved scope, Enter and Work in Confined Spaces is just one of the seven, High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) courses that METL will be delivering. We had 6 participants from a diverse range of backgrounds, including DP World, The Royal Lifesaving Society, Light Application (a company that originally installed the lighting control system for our facility). Given that the majority of the cohort where from different industries, it gave our lecturer an opportunity to deliver across a broad scope of contextual backgrounds from Maritime, Construction and Civil applications.
During the delivery of the confined space course the participation of the entire cohort was integral to the outcomes each of the candidates fed back about their overall course experience. The broad range of ages and diverse industry experience contributed to the overall student satisfaction and, all participants displayed confidence in their ability to work together as group.
The course was delivered over a single day and was split into two parts. The first] covering the legislative and regulatory requirements and the second] which focused on the practical: from filling out and understanding a risk assessment, to the application of a Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) and how these processes are addressed in a toolbox meeting.
