Danish Maritime Authority approved occupational health courses (§16)

Danish Maritime Authority order no. 863 of 22 June 2017 order on safety work and occupational health in merchant ships state that safety committee members must have attended one of the occupational health courses approved by the Danish Maritime Authority.

The courses have now been running for more than 20 years. Many seamen have attended them and feedback from delegates has been that they receive a good tool to help them with their day-to-day health and safety work aboard.
