However, was I you, a 1M is a hellova lot better than a 2M when it comes to looking for work ashore in the future. All you have to do is Lecktech, EKs and Orals. EKG is on Monday afternoons and EKM is on Tuesday mornings. Leckytech is on Thursday afternoons. Your theory exams are good for life, you won't have to redo them. Get the Leckytech out of the way, then have a crack at EKs.

YOU just have to make sure you aren't one of them. That's why there are Safety Committees run and operated by the crew. Employers, ie, ones who direct the work, (NOT who pays the pay cheque) are not permitted to sit in on Safety meetings. (Top 4) Minutes must be kept and presented to a TC Safety Officer when required. Any safety concerns MUST be addressed, if not, TC has a whole raft of Health and Safety Officers and an official complaint will stir the pot. Charges are usually laid against the EMPLOYER, (ie Capt, Chief, Mate, 2nd) who directs the work and/or controls the unsafe condition. Believe me, MOSH has a much bigger stick than the Canada Shipping Act.
