RMT Code of Diving Safety from Craft
I am writing to inform you of the work your union is undertaking to improve the international standards for the health and safety of our members working in the diving industry.
In line with the National Executive Committee’s instruction, the RMT’s proposals for a Code of Diving Safety from Craft have been drafted and submitted to Kitack Lim, Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organisation, the Department for Transport and the Department for Work and Pensions and to the ITF. A copy of the union’s proposed Code of Diving Safety from Craft is attached.
I would appreciate it if you could bring this circular to the attention of all Branch members and you will be kept informed of all further developments.
