Sub-committee: Ship Systems and Equipment (SSE)

Sub-Committee on Ship Systems and Equipment (SSE): 

undertakes technical and operational matters relating to ships’ systems and equipment of vessels, crafts and mobile units, such as life-saving equipment, appliances and arrangements (LSA), fire protection, onboard lifting appliances and anchor handling winches (OLAW) and safety for diving units and systems. The Sub-committee ensures systems and equipment aboard are regulated to enhance the safety of lives and ship, security of cargoes and prevention of marine environment.

Maritime workers have already experienced transitions of paradigms. De facto, we have been experiencing and adapting on the job. Thus, we know. Protecting maritime workers lives means saving ship’s life and the environment. Appropriate education and training are indispensable. The ITF delegation endeavours to address such education and training not to jeopardies safety and wellbeing. Ultimately, the ITF strives to ensure regulations about systems and equipment aboard enhance safety of lives and ships and security of cargo.
