Chronos Shipping is an active supporter of the Adopt A Ship program, which is implemented by
PROJECT CONNECT and inspires children to become seafarers, cultivating the Greek maritime tradition.
The program connects vessels to elementary, middle school, and vocational high schools in
Greece, whereby children learn about shipping and life at sea via email communication directly to
and from captains of vessels at sea.
We maintain a “No Blame” policy and encourage all employees, ashore and
on board, to identify and report to the management events such as near
misses, accidents, dangerous occurrences and nonconformities,
enabling the entire team to analyse causes, learn from experience, and
improve safety and other practices.
Chronos Shipping is a member of the
Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association (HELMEPA): the pioneering
voluntary commitment of Greek seafarers and ship owners undertaken
in Piraeus on June 4, 1982 to safeguard the seas from ship-generated pollution.
Seafarers are essential to international trade and to the international economy.
To help protect the world’s seafarers and their contribution to international trade, the International Labour Organization (ILO) adopted the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC), with which Chronos Shipping complies.
The MLC’s international standards for seafarers, also known as the “Seafarers’ Bill of Rights,” sets out requirements for work on a ship (i.e., minimum age, medical fitness and training) and conditions of employment (such as hours of work and rest, wages, leave, repatriation, accommodation, recreational facilities, food and catering, and occupational safety and health protection).
