In brief

MLC campaign 2016

The Paris MOU is carrying out a three-month inspection campaign to look at levels of compliance with the ILO work environment convention, which came into force in 2013. The campaign was launched on 1 September and will continue for three months. Everything from salaries to diet to cabins will be surveyed using specially designed questionnaires.

No personnel injuries during onboard fire

On 1 September a fire broke out on Stena Spirit between Karlskrona and Gdynia, Poland. A lorry on the car deck caught fire half an hour before the ferry arrived in Poland. Passengers were assembled on the deck while the crew extinguished the fire. Nobody was injured. What caused the fire is still unclear.

Praise reduces sick leave

Appreciation shown by managers is a cheap but effective part of preventing long-term sickness leave. Praise has a particularly noticeable effect on people who suffer from sleeping disorders. This has been shown by a new Danish study at NFA (National Centre for Work Environment Research) involving just over 10,000 people selected at random.
