Measure 1: Average number of Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) deficiencies per inspection compared to a rolling 10-year average

Target
≤0.5

Results

  • Annual (cumulative or average): 0.3
  • Status: Target met or exceeded

Anaylsis
There is not yet a 10 year rolling average - the MLC has only been in force a little over two years.

  • Quarter One: 38 reported complaints were investigated in accordance with guidelines.
  • Quarter Two: 31 complaints were received. One complaint was unable to be investigated due to the vessel’s departure. An alert was placed in our Shipsys database to follow up when the vessel returned to Australia.
  • Quarter Three: 34 compaints were received, and all were investigated in accordance with the MLC.
  • Quarter Four: There were 29 complaints, but only 27 of these could be investigated before the ships in question sailed. Alerts have been raised against these ships to ensure that the complaints are followed up on their next visit to Australia.

Target
100%

Results

  • Annual (cumulative or average): 100%
  • Status: Target met or exceeded

Anaylsis
Objectives of the ASWC are being achieved. AMSA strengthened international networks with participation at the second meeting of the Special Tripartite Committee of the MLC.

Ongoing support was provided to the Brisbane & Gladstone Port Welfare Committees (PWC) and to a group interested in forming a PWC in Newcastle.

Seafarer welfare issues were promoted to a domestic and international audience at Ergoship 2016, and the Ergoship organising committee delivered $500.00 donations to four seafarer welfare organisations in Victoria in support of the services they provide to seafarers.

Certification & Pilotage System (CPS 2) Project

Description
The project aims to make the way we issue certificates more effective and efficient, ultimately improving service delivery to seafarers.

Status
Complete

Summary
CPS 2 went into production in August 2015, and has realised efficiencies in processing of seafarers’ certificates. A decision was taken late in 2015-16 to expand the application to include the issue of near-coastal seafarers’ certificates under the National System initiative. This phase of work is due to be completed in 2016-17.

Torres Strait Maritime Pathways Project (TSMPP)

Description
Delivered in partnership with Torres Strait Regional Authority and Maritime Safety Queensland, the project aims to provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders with maritime and maritime-related vocational career pathways. These pathways are designed to lead into careers through diverse and higher level qualifications, and literal pathways into maritime employment within or beyond the Torres Strait.

Status
On track

Summary
Since 2013 95% of 210 TSMPP participants completed maritime training and achieved nationally-accredited qualifications, and 85% of that group are now in maritime-related employment. As of June 2016, a number of TSMPP participant organisations are employing at least two Indigenous staff members in local communities. The project also delivered a number of safety initiatives to improve and promote maritime safety in the region.
