Multi Purpose General Cargo vessel < 3000 gt [1]

The safety of the ship and its crew requires social safety on board. Shipping companies must make it possible for crew members to report complaints, if necessary outside the captain, to a trusted person or the Inspectorate. They must inform crew members of this possibility, as prescribed in Standard A5.1.5 On-board complaint procedures of the Maritime Labour Convention. It is recommended that this complaints procedure be visibly posted in places on board accessible to all crew members.
