I am now working on a boat operating under Safety Management System and we have a “rest period log.”
Operating policy is clear that the rest log be maintained only when operating beyond the boundary line as defined in 46CFR part7. But, it is unclear about which crew members need to keep an individual rest log. Each Officer in Charge of a Navigational Watch and each Officer in Charge of an Engineering Watch is included, but from what I see unlicensed crew members are NOT included unless they have RFPNW or RFPEW and need not be included at all in the rest period log.
Is this right?
P.S. Who is the governing authority for Safety Management System?
