This publication provides the criteria for the development of courses to deliver training in personal safety and social responsibility (PSSR), entry into enclosed spaces and shipboard safety officer training.
Training courses developed in line with these criteria, delivered at centres approved by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), will cover:
- Personal safety and social responsibility (PSSR) (section 2)
- Entry into enclosed spaces (section 3)
- Shipboard safety officer training (section 4)
The specifications described in this document have been developed by the Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) in conjunction with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).
The MCA has agreed with the MNTB that the specifications described in this document will satisfy the requirements for approved PSSR and shipboard safety officer training. Conditions for MCA approval of short courses are contained in Annex A, which should be used in conjunction with the MCA guide to approval of regulatory training requirements. A course developed to cover entry into enclosed spaces does not need to be approved by the MCA or any other body, neither is there an approval process to cover such a course.
