We offer extensive pre-joining familiarization to joining crew. We devote considerable hours in orienting joining crew about the principal’s policies, ISM, vessel’s SMS. We likewise conduct risk assessment seminars so that both officers and ratings joining the vessels are highly safety conscious.
KMA believes that crew wellness is as much a safety issue as it is a cost issue. Maintaining a good pool of crew who are healthy – mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically is one of the most effective ways to minimize, if not, downright avoid sudden repatriations and future crew claims. Hence, in our pre-departure seminars, we take time to emphasize the importance of good work values and crew responsibility to adjust to good lifestyle, health and safety habits to ensure fitness to serve onboard ships until retirement. We also discuss financial management. Financial advisers are invited to talk about methods to save, invest and prepare for emergencies and retirement.
