The MCA have released a  public consultation exercise about the amendments to the Merchant Shipping and Fishing Vessels (Health and Safety at Work) (Carcinogens and Mutagens) Regulations 2007.

“The changes add to and amend workplace exposure limits on a number of carcinogens. In addition, the Regulations require an employer to continue offering health surveillance where a seafarer or worker has been exposed to a carcinogen and a medical practitioner recommends health surveillance should continue beyond the end of their employment.”
