Full Description:

The Personal Safety and Social Responsibility (PSSR) course forms part of the mandatory basic offshore safety training for all seafarers assigned safety or pollution prevention duties. The course is designed to prepare new personnel for life on a ship at sea where they will experience a vastly different living and working environment compared to that if they were living and working ashore.

This course will give new seafarers an insight into the various elements of a ship and working procedures on board so that they can adjust to the shipboard environment and are better prepared to cope with any unforeseen circumstances.

This course is planned to make their transaction from a shore to a sea career as smooth as possible and provide some understanding of a seafarers working environment and the hazards, procedures and safe working practices they will encounter before they step on board a ship.

A trainee who successfully completes this course will be able to:

  • Comply with emergency procedures
  • Take precautions to prevention pollution of the marine environment
  • Observe safe working practices
  • Contribute to effective communication on board
  • Contribute to human relationships on board
  • Understand and take necessary actions to control fatigue
