Personal Safety and Social Responsibility
Personal Safety and Social Responsibility course offers basic induction training in safety procedures and accident prevention and familiarises novices with the employment conditions and working environment of superyachts.
The Personal Safety & Social Responsibility (PSSR) course forms part of the mandatory basic offshore safety training for all seafarers assigned safety or pollution prevention duties.
Its objectives are to give basic induction training in safety procedures and accident prevention and to familiarise personnel with the employment conditions and working environment on board vessels.
The purpose of this course is to provide a permanent source of reference to the subject matter of Personal Safety & Social Responsibilities (PSSR) following the successful completion of training.
This course is designed to introduce newly attested Naval Service Personnel to the mandatory minimum requirements for familiarization for working onboard ship and basic safety training and instruction in accordance with Section A-VI/1 of the STCW Code (Standards of Training, Certificates, and Watchkeeping).
Due to the vastly different environment on a ship as compared to ashore, this course is designed to prepare new personnel for a life at sea. Working at sea can be a hazardous occupation for the uninitiated.
The course will provide an insight into the various elements of a ship and Operating Procedures onboard so that adjustment can be made to the shipboard environment, and are better prepared to cope with any unforeseen circumstances.
This course is planned to provide knowledge of shipboard life before personnel step on board.
This course is not intended to replace DC/FF courses or Medical First Aid courses conducted by newly attested personnel.
