AMSA289 Seacare Policy

The Australian Government is committed to achieving continuous improvement in OHS in the seacare jurisdiction.

The purpose of this policy is to explain the Seafarers Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Authority (Seacare Authority) and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s (AMSA) approach to workplace health and safety regulation under the Occupational Health and Safety (Maritime Industry) Act 1993 (the OHS(MI) Act). In particular, the policy explains the principles which govern the enforcement activities of AMSA and its Inspectors.
