Denmark: BIMCO Creates Standard Contract for Armed Guards

first_img Share this article Back to overview,Home naval-today Denmark: BIMCO Creates Standard Contract for Armed Guards Authorities View post tag: Standard November 22, 2011 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: creates View post tag: Armed BIMCO has created a standard contract for the private maritime security industry and the first draft should be confirmed for early 2012, providing the industry with a much-needed benchmark on which to judge PMSCs.Chief maritime security officer at the shipowner trade association Giles Noakes said that the contract had taken into account the concerns of the P&I clubs as well as underwriters, shipowners and lawyers. He added that the trade body had worked closely with all interested parties to ensure that all views were heard.Mr Noakes explained that the standard would provide and take account of the International Maritime Organization’s MSC.1/ Circ.1405/Rev.1 and MSC1/ Circ.1406/Rev.1 but would provide more detail because IMO members could not be as prescriptive as the industry needed them to be.“The industry is happy with 1405 and 6; it is good advice, and while it has quite a lot of detail it is not quite enough. Law firms currently have to draw up a contract per voyage and part of BIMCO’s role is to provide standards that can be used in this manner. We felt drawing up a standard contract for PMSCs was the quickest way of dealing with a difficult problem,” he said.The standard is expected to come into force as soon as possible and the drafting committee is meeting shortly to get things under way. However, Mr Noakes said the contract alone was not a sufficient indicator of a reputable PMSC.“Just because a security company signs the contract, it doesn’t mean that they are a good company,” he said. “Signing means that they agree to abide by the standards and then organisations like the Security Association for the Maritime Industry will have a baseline of standards to judge PMSCs on. It will at least give everyone a bottom line to work with.“There is a concern that there is an increasing amount of companies offering independent audits but who is policing the policemen? At least the standard contract is a way of starting this. Questions have to be raised over the competency of any PMSC that is not prepared to sign the contract.”Mr Noakes said that he was in no way saying that these audit services should not be developed but only that some firms were moving faster than others in response to the rapidly growing sector and that there were “too many known unknowns” and therefore the industry needed some kind of benchmark.He questioned whether classification societies would eventually conduct PMSC audits but said that there did not seem to be much interest from this quarter.“It is an issue people are willing to address and the IMO has worked hard to do this but there isn’t the technical competence and why should there be? We are dealing with an area where there is no precedent. We have had this problem forced upon us and seafarers are quite rightly demanding protection,” he said.[mappress]November 22, 2011; Image: SeaSecurity View post tag: Guards View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy View post tag: BIMCO View post tag: contract Denmark: BIMCO Creates Standard Contract for Armed Guardslast_img read more

Alexander Forbes adopts high school

first_img12 August 2011Memezelo Secondary School in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria, is the latest public school in South Africa to partner with an established private sector group.Leading financial services group Alexander Forbes has adopted the school in a bid to help it improve the quality of its education output. The cooperation was formally launched on 3 August at Memezelo.Alexander Forbes will share expertise – ranging from financial management to leadership skills – with Memezelo, with the aim of advancing administration and teaching at the school. The ultimate goal is an improvement in matric results.Monetary investments into Memezelo will come at a later stage, said Alexander Forbes CEO Edward Kieswetter. For now the focus is on stabilising human capacity.Initial investments will go towards fixing the school’s hall and several classrooms, as well building a computer laboratory and a library. “We’ll start looking at building those over the next few months,” said Kieswetter.Alexander Forbes conducted a security risk audit at the school, and found that security needs to be bolstered. This, too, will be taken care of.Kieswetter has set up a mentoring relationship with Memezelo principal Prince Maluleke, which involves the transfer of management and leadership skills. The principal was invited to Alexander Forbes’ leadership conference held in Cape Town in January 2011, where, he said, he learnt a lot.Management teams from both sides will also meet for training programmes, while teachers have received education in personal finance management. “A financially healthy teacher is a productive teacher,” said Maluleke.HIV/Aids training sessions for teachers have started, and will be conducted over 12 months.The partnership is a direct result of Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe’s involvement in Memezelo’s affairs. He adopted the school in January 2010 to help it improve.“I am confident that this commitment will go a long way towards improving the quality of education in this school,” said Motlanthe, speaking at the launch. “Through this partnership we will turn Memezelo into one of the highest performing schools.”Formerly one of Gauteng’s more troublesome schools, Memezelo is turning the tide on poor matric performance, lack of order and mismanagement. The school scored an 83.3% matric pass rate in 2010.Kieswetter said Alexander Forbes plans to sustain the relationship with Memezelo over many years to come. “It’s a journey that will unfold.”Bursaries for top performersAlexander Forbes will award bursaries to Memezelo matriculants who pass with flying colours. This announcement encouraged the school’s 2011 Grade 12 pupils to study hard and score high marks.Matric pupil Babuyile Ncube fancies her chances of obtaining the coveted bursary. An orphan dependent on her grandmother, she’s fully aware that the bursary could be a life-changing opportunity.“It’s up to me to take this opportunity. I have to work hard,” said Ncube. The teenager, who wants to enrol for a biotechnology degree, is confident of her examination prospects. “I have many chances in making it. I need the bursary.”Another Grade 12 pupil, Constance Madonsela, said the bursary offer was motivational.Principal Maluleke encouraged his pupils to work hard. “Go get those As, they will take all of you to university,” he told the pupils.Alexander Forbes will focus on training programmes and “making bursaries available to committed pupils who perform well”, said Motlanthe.A call to adopt schoolsThe government is confident that more businesses will heed its call to invest in public schools, scores of which are still disadvantaged.Motlanthe and basic education minister Angie Motshekga met 150 local business leaders in November 2010 to discuss Business-Adopt-a-School initiatives. Businesses did make pledges to support such schemes, according to Motlanthe.Alexander Forbes’ initiative is “one of the first of many that I hope will continue to follow from the private sector”, said Motlanthe. “We encourage others from the business sector to heed this example as part of their corporate social investment programmes.”While the government was “acutely aware” that it’s responsible for the achievement of quality primary education, it also needs help from businesses, said the deputy president.“The government cannot do without businesses,” said Gauteng Legislature member Molebatsi Bopape, adding that the education department has done well in transforming the school into an environment conducive to learning.First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.last_img read more

Trump touches on ag issues in the State of the Union

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Kolt Buchenroth, Ohio Ag NetPresident Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress and subsequently the nation this week in an hour and 21-minute State of the Union address. It was clear that border security was at the forefront of the President’s agenda, as he mentioned the quickly approaching deadline for government funding which, if an agreement isn’t reached, will end in a government shutdown.Agriculture was mentioned when President Trump boasted his administration’s elimination of the estate or death tax, mentioning specifically family farms and U.S. ranchers. That comment received a roar of applause from those in attendance. The farm bill got a nod from the Commander in Chief in the spirit of bipartisanship and cooperation. Trade was also a talking point, saying that the United States has placed tariffs on $350 billion of goods imported from China. President Trump also said that the negotiations will have to include a structural change to the deal that protects American jobs and ends the trade deficit, but there was no direct mention of how that will impact agriculture.The former North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and its proposed successor the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement or USMCA were both mentioned as the President urged members of Congress to support the bill to “expand American agriculture.” In addition, the President urged Congress to pass the Reciprocal Trade Act, which proposes to place the same tariff on a given country should they place a tariff on the United States.In the 10-minute Democratic response that was delivered by Former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, it was noted that farmers were caught in the middle of the trade war between the U.S. and the Chinese. She also mentioned that agriculture, among several other industries were stronger with immigrants.The American Farm Bureau praised the President’s comments.“President Trump has outlined bold priorities in his State of the Union address, and we hope the administration and Congress can move forward in a bipartisan manner to make progress toward the goals that we all share. Farmers and ranchers across the country need reforms to our immigration system, and we echo President Trump’s call for Congress to ratify the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement to preserve and build on the export gains with our North American neighbors. At the same time, we support bipartisan efforts to rebuild and modernize our nation’s infrastructure, including broadband technology in rural areas,” said Zippy Duvall, AFBF president. “Farm Bureau also appreciates President Trump’s message of optimism and unity. The bipartisan passage of the farm bill last year shows that our elected leaders can come together and achieve great things for our country.”last_img read more
