STRATEGIK DAN PELAN TINDAKAN .::. Memantapkan Pengurusan Keselamatan Perkapalan Nasional

Rancangan Malaysia ke-10 (RMK-10) menyatakan bahawa dalam memantapkan pengurusan keselamatan perkapalan nasional, satu mekanisma perlu diwujudkan. Ia bagi memastikan satu persekitaran yang dapat menjamin ketenteraman, keselamatan dan keyakinan awam untuk kehidupan yang sejahtera. Dasar pengurusan keselamatan perkapalan nasional dapat meningkatkan sistem pengangkutan awam yang bersepadu, mudah capai dan selamat.


  1. To formulate this important policy that charts the future of Malaysian shipping, we need to listen to stakeholders, customers, ship owners, Malaysian seafarers, the port community, shipyards, business guilds and people who wants Malaysian shipping industry to be competitive. I want to gauge the present state of the industry and identify areas that are obstacles to progress.

    I welcome comments and suggestions that you may have, and even a single line comment is valuable. Without your contributions, we may not have a sound shipping policy that can make Malaysia as a truly maritime nation

  2. Untuk merumuskan suatu dasar yang begitu penting dalam menentukan hala tuju masa depan pekapalan Malaysia, kami ingin mendengar dari pelanggan, pemunya kapal, pelaut, masyarakat pelabuhan, pembina kapal, persatuan-persatuan perniagaan dan mereka yang ingin melihat industri pekapalan Malaysia berdaya saing. Kami perlu mengenalpasti perkara-perkara yang boleh membantutkan kemajuan.

    Kami mengalu-alukan ulasan dan cadangan, walupu yang ringkas. Tanpa sumbangan anda, kami mungkin tidak dapat menyediakan suatu dasar pekapalan yang mantap untuk menjadikan Malaysia sebuah negara maritim yang sebenar-benarnya.

  3. We are doing research to gather information on the Malaysian shipping industry. In areas where there are very little information, we will conduct surveys and distribute questionnaire to people that we think can give valuable inputs and information. For your convenience, we will upload the questionnaire here soon.

  4. thanks for putting up this blog.
    to start the ball rolling, i would like to suggest the following topic of discussions:
    1. where are we now
    2. where are we heading
    3. do we really need to differentiate between the safety standard of domestic and international routes bearing in mind of our geographical locations between sabah, sarawak and peninsular?
    4. "safety cost money" - how true is that statements? what is the actual cost of safety? are shipowners/managers/etc willing to bear the financial burden?
    5. as a safety administrator, should the dept think about ideal or practical standards of safety? where does "practicality" intrude upon the business of safety?
    thats enough for now, i think. lets hear what others have to say

  5. hi. honestly, shipping is something new to me. as for me, there are something that i would like to share some knowledge.

    - as i am in the tourism industry, i have seen a tremendous achievement and advancement in the Malaysian sea sports industry. From yachting, scuba diving, speed boating, jet skiing, snorkelling and fishing as well.

    - As our waters have been blessed with one of the most richest and most beautiful underwater life, it has been one of the main product that have been attracting foreign tourists over the past years.

    - in the meantime too, i have noticed that in the name of safety (keselamatan) in our water transportation, is what we have never take any serious measures and action, as over the years, there are many boat related incidents that involves tourists, but we still lacked.

    - when questions arise, most will pointing fingers to various authority. some says it is under the Jabatan laut, some says under jabatan perikanan, etc.

    -but the point is, until when do we realize that we need to take such precaution regarding these so called minor issues? forget the safety for the big tanker vessel, the cargo vessel. Just go to some of our wonderful islands and we can see many boats operates even without life jackets for their passenger.

    - i am sorry if this topics may do not relate in this blog, but i do hope that safety measures in the shipping/boating world are up to the standard in our wonderful country.

    - eg. in fishing, Malaysia is one of the top spot for must visit for professional anglers to come and go for our jenahak. this is true, which for your information that professional anglers are mostly comes from high class society, and angling is part of their hobby, traveling all over the world just to find the best spot.

    - last but not least, i do hope whatever plan and measurement that you are doing and are going to realise for the RMK 10, please do also bring these measure to the small boat industry for the sake of our tourism industry.

    saya yakin dengan mantapnya sistem pengurusan dan keselamatan kapal/bot pengangkutan di Malasia, ia secara langsung dapat menarik lebih ramai pelancong asing serta tempatan untuk melawati pusat-pusat tarikan pelancongan di Malaysia terutama di Pulau-pulau peranginan.

    sekian, terima kasih.

  6. Good Day Anonymous, I am glad that you come forward and post your comments here. There are two "Anonymous" in this blog, so I am not sure if both "anonymous" is the same person. Maybe beter if you could sign in by putting a different fictitious name.

    I believe some of the points you said are quite true, and I won't deny it. Please be assured that you are on the right blog to discuss your topics and express your views.

    To promote marine tourism, sport fishing and marine leisure activities, there are several things that we can look at and improve. Safety is an important issue. It could be safety of the boats, equipped with the proper life saving appliances on board and safety of navigation for small craft. Having trained skipper and boat crew is also another point. Improvement on shore support services, to give navigational advice, weather advice and provide assistance to small boats when in distress maybe another area.

    From the few past accidents, there are lessons learnt and measures taken to improve safety. But from your comments, I guess that we have to do more to improve public perception on boat safety, particularly in the tourism-related activities. A more coordinated efforts amongst the government agencies, tourism groups and boat operators is essential.

    Thank you for your comments. We appreciate your contribution, and sharing your thoughts and views in this blog.

  7. keselamatan = safety.? = security.?
    penglibatan agensi / jbtn kerajaan lain spt DOSH = aspek keselamatan pekerja pelabuhan(stevedors)

    agensi yang bertanggungjawab dlm menangani / bertindak dalam sebarang kes kecemasan spt kebakaran di perairan Malaysia perlu memantapkan lagi peranan.
    Kapal terbakar di Selat Melaka / TSS, dibantu oleh Tug dari S'pore untuk memadamkan kebakaran.?

    Peralatan melawan tumpahan minyak dari pihak bertanggungjawab dan juga Jabatan Laut sendiri.?
    adakah kita bersedia untuk sebarang kes pencemaran.?
    Kekerapan latihan bersama agensi berkaitan.? Latihan serta "familiarization" crew yang terlibat.?

  8. Malaysia is looking forward to be a maritime nation. Many maritime industry players intend to use Malaysia jurisdiction for shipping disputes. Shipowners, charterers, local shippers and local agents prefer to choose Malaysian courts for maritime disputes. In the past, there have been several meetings and forums held to obtain feed-back to set-up maritime arbitrations centre and maritime courts.

    The following three proposals are to be given priority for the country to move towards the maritime nation:-

    1. The establishment of maritime courts;

    2. The ratifications of international maritime conventions;

    3. The setting-up of maritime university

    Secondly, the current Merchant Shipping Ordinance must be revisited and improved to suit the current shipping activities. We may look at the United Kingdom Merchant Shipping Act as a role model. Without any further delay, we must pull-in expertise from the maritime field to study and review the maritime law and the usage in our Malaysian legal system.

    Thirdly, judges and lawyers must be trained in this area of law to contribute towards the developments of Malaysia legal system.

  9. Badron - We are in the business of oil spills preparedness, response and cooperation for more than 20 years, having our own oil spill response equipment (OSRE)in the past 17 years. These OSRE are placed at strategic locations in the country especially along the Strait of Malacca.To maintain and enhance the standard of response, we do training as well field exercises twice yearly for our dedicated regional staff and once for every 2 years for national oil spill exercise. The national exercise will involve all the 18 agencies (government & private)that sit on the National Oil Spills Contingency Committee.I hope this will enlighten some questions raised by Anonymous on 18/4/10

  10. I do hope the blog administrator could guide bloggers regarding the relevant topics to be discussed or commented upon as later there could be some unexpected diversion from the main topic. However any opinion is worth the posting.

  11. The culture of blogging to share views and knowledge may be new to some. The objectives of this blog has been outlined in the header and emphasised in my first comments.

    I would like to encourage people to post their comments and express their views on what shall be done for the good of Malaysian shipping, and to shape the future. With the blog, things should be more informal and casual. People should be at ease and not worry about whether their facts and figures are correct. What is more important is the ideas and imaginations of the people in the industry, giving suggestions on what we should do, where should we go and how to do it? What we are actually doing here is a public consultation.

    Before we sit down and write the shipping policy, we want to listen to what people have to say. So, please post your comments here. We are all ears.

  12. The theme for World Maritime Day this year is “2010: Year of the Seafarer”. And one of the objectives of this theme is to reinforce the “Go to Sea” campaign launched in 2008, promoting careers at sea to new generations. According to the International Maritime Employees Committee (IMEC), who represents over 125 shipping companies worldwide, there will be a shortage of about 200,000 trained officers in the next 2 years. The retirement of aging European ship officers was said to be one of the contributing factors for this shortage.

    At the forefront, about 25% of the world seafarers are Filipinos. With more than 70 seafarers and marine-related training schools, in the Philippines, they are able to sustain the supply of seafarers to the world shipping. Amidst of the global economic crisis, in year 2009, Filipino seafarers, working on foreign ships, remitted more than USD 3B to their families. This certainly gives a boost to the retail economy of the country.

    As for Malaysia, there are 18 maritime training schools, of which, less than 10 schools provide the seafarer’s training. And only a couple of schools offer unlimited voyage courses. Apparently the market for maritime training in this country is quite limited. Currently, probably there are about 10,000 local seamen but what proportion of them is actively sailing.

    If the “Go to Sea” campaign and the current rate of wages for officers ranging from USD 5,000 to USD 10,000, fail to attract the local younger generation, it will be difficult to generate a sustainable size of local seafarers. Some 460,000 students left school last year, having completed their secondary education. Perhaps the campaign should be targeted to this group of people, promoting sea careers, especially ship officers, as economically attractive job opportunities.

    Probably we need several different approaches to promote seafaring. Endowed with sound, practical and sustained policy, maybe we can succeed in spurring the locals to look at sea careers as the choice careers in years to come. More aggressive and cohesive actions are needed to strengthen maritime education and seafarers training in this country. And this, I think should be the cornerstone of the national shipping safety management policy.

  13. Two Thumbs Up for the homegrown blogspot to hear the voices of Malaysia maritime community.
    We have to look at best alternatives to make Malaysian shipping self sustainable in these changeable times. The government, administrators, training institute, ports, ship owners must work in harmony in addressing major challenges, don’t treat the symptoms but nip the root problems. Problems such as outflow of freight charges to non national shipping lines, dependency on foreign seafarers, lack of suitable Malaysian sea farers, career planning for seafarers, high value logistics services, cost reduction in supply chain management, warehousing and cargo distribution.

  14. Thank you Nadaraj. Yes, we need everyone to work together to make Malaysian shipping competitive and sustainable.

    The problems that you mentioned have been there for very long time, but the efforts and actions to “treat the symptoms” are just not enough and thus, not producing the desired results. If we keep doing the same thing over and over again, it is very unlikely we will get different results. If something is not working, we have to fix it. Unless people are happy with the mediocre achievements, then we don’t change course.

    All right, we will look at “best alternatives” and be innovative in formulating the action plans. Certainly the best action plans are plans that involved public and private cooperation. I need thinking and creative people to do this.

  15. satu dasar peringkat kebangsaan adalah perlu kerana industri perkapalan suatu yang istimewa dalam perhubungannya sebagai pilihan kemudahan komersial merentasi sempadan di antara benua. satu dasar bersistem khusus mesti diwujudkan bagi mengurus pemain-pemain industri termasuk daripada pihak berkuasa (penguatkuasa dasar) seperti kastam (kawalan cargo), immigrasi (kawalan krew), APMM (kawalan perairan) dan JLM (kawalan perkapalan)..
    badan-badan berkanun ini ialah tulang belakang kepada dasar-dasar kerajaan dengan matlamat memberi perkhidmatan berterusan kepada pemunya kapal atau pengurus kapal atau penyewa menjalankan bisnes mereka secara terbaik dan tidak menyalah peraturan-peraturan yang terbaik.
    setiap aktiviti yang dijalankan adalah berdasarkan kepada kehendak semasa dengan mensasarkan kepada hasil yang diharapkan oleh dunia bisnes (pengeluar dan pengguna).
    untuk itu, kemudahan-kemudahan perkapalan dan pengurusan pelan adalah penting ke arah menyumbang perkembangan pihak yang berkepentingan.
    justeru itu, penyertaan dan sokongan daripada pemain-pemain industri bukan kerajaan seperti pengurus pelabuhan dan terminal lautan, syarikat-syarikat agensi (eksport/import), pemunya/pengurus kapal, pertubuhan-pertubuhan antarabangsa maritin seperti Lloyds, ABS, DNV dan lain-lain untuk memastikan kejayaan sistem ini.
    pelan ini mestilah disokong oleh institusi-institusi pengajian bagi pembaharuan yang diperlukan di masa depan.
    marilah kita bersama-sama membangunkan maritin negara demi masa depan kemajuan dunia industri kelautan.

    terima kasih

  16. Memang benar, kejayaan sesuatu rancangan untuk membangunkan negara memerlukan usaha dan penyertaan semua pihak, Kerajaan, pemain-pemain industri swasta, institut pengajian dan rakyat. Saya akui kita boleh wujudkan pelan untuk merancang sesuatu impian, hasrat dan matlamat, tetapi kita perlukan peneraju dan penggerak pelan, untuk melaksanakan tindakan-tindakan yang dirancang.

    Tidak dinafikan, rancangan untuk pembangunan modal insan, mengujudkan kumpulan pakar dalam ilmu kelautan dan mempromosi kerjaya pelaut, akan memerlukan penglibatan institusi pengajian dan universiti.

    Dalam sektor perkapalan, Jabatan Laut boleh menjadi peneraju dan mengambil tanggungjawab untuk mengatur tindakan yang sepadu diantara semua pihak yang berkepentingan untuk memajukan industri perkapalan Malaysia.

    Apa bentuk tindakan-tindakan yang boleh menghasilkan matlamat yang ingin dicapai, ini harus difikir bersama.

  17. In our quest to be a maritime nation and formulate a blue print on Malaysian Shipping, I think we must not forget that the maritime legislation must also be able to support the plan and also support any actions to make Malaysian shipping competitive.

    I think we must not ignore that the domestic maritime legislation must be updated to boost Malaysia as a maritime nation within next few years. Malaysia can remain competitive with the rest of the world by keeping abreast with the current developments in the world shipping and flexible enough to cater for the nation’s future.

    Once we have a good and modern maritime legislation in place, we must develop the legal expertise. At present, there is no training centre in this country that trains maritime lawyers. This is evident from the small number of lawyers in this country that are involved in maritime cases. If the shipping industry grows, the demand for legal expertise will increase. Marine Department must develop the experts in maritime law, and just domestic laws but also international maritime laws. As the shipping industry grows, activities will increase and so too, litigations and disputes.

    Since Marine Department has a maritime training institute, I would like to suggest that the institute develop a short maritime course. It could be a diploma programme or something equivalent. The potential course participants should be officers of Marine Department, other Government maritime agencies, people from the ports and also private sectors.

    If we have expertise in maritime legal field in this country, the shipping industry will have confidence to develop a plan to set-up Maritime Arbitration Centre and Admiralty Court in Malaysia similar to UK.

    With the fast developments in the maritime field in terms of education, training and knowledge based society, Malaysia can create a lot more opportunities for the next generations and ultimately Malaysia’s dream to be a true maritime nation will be achieved.

  18. nak maju apa orang pun dah takda...................

  19. pelaut-pelaut malaysia dah pupus..................... dah takde pegawai2 lagi sebab kelasi nya pun takde..............shipping company sambil lewa amik pelaut asing............ sekarang dah lebih 100K pelaut asing ...kita ada ka pelaut malaysia sebanyak tu?????????

  20. Sape yang nak bantu negara kalau bukan pelaut tempatan diorang yang buat ekonomi negara berpusing...........pelaut asing bawa duit ke negara depa la..... kalau tiap bulan pelaut asing korek duit negara sebanyak 1 billion tak ke lama2 negara bankrupt?????????

  21. Jabatan Laut Malaysia very strict dengan law tuk pelaut tempatan sampai yang ada experience puluhan tahun nak amik cert pun susah..bila nak dapat mcm 2 masalah. oral berjam2 tak lulus..... kesah nya sikit je.. akibat nya ramai yang tak teruskan pelajaran sampai abis.. tapi PELAUT ASING YANG TAK TENTU ORI KE TAK SIJIL TU BOLEH MAIN SENANG2 JE AMIK.........DTG MALAYSIA KEJE TUGBOAT KAT WESTPORT JADI AB SETAHUN KEMUDIAN DTG BALIK DENGAN TIKET FG MASTER.. UIH AMBIK.. BG NAIK KAPAL BENDERA MALAYSIA..........MACAMMANATUH????


  23. To be a leading maritime agency, officers in Marine Department must be competent, knowledgeable and have the right qualities and attitude. It is essential for Marine Department to transform itself into a learning organisation, instilling the culture of knowledge sharing amongst the officers. Everyone in Marine department must share this common value and really make efforts to share the knowledge, at least among their peers. One method of knowledge sharing is by ICT-based knowledge Centre. We can call it e-Knowledge Centre, which will have system to capture knowledge; share knowledge and disseminate knowledge efficiently.

    To begin with, officers coming back from courses, conferences, seminars and symposiums, must be willing to share information or knowledge they acquire from attending these events. For those officers who cannot find the time or diffident about making presentations, they could post what they learned into the Knowledge Centre. It could be Process Knowledge; Technology; Habitual Knowledge; Communal Knowledge and Collaboration Knowledge.

    As it happens now, if you are not in the loop, it is difficult to keep abreast with current development. This is more evident for people working in regional offices of Marine Department. They may learn one or two new things when they attend meetings in headquarters but this is not enough to push the department into a leading maritime agency. I think more should be done. Otherwise the officers in Marine Department will have a “Tunnel Vision” (i.e. nobody really cares or knows what anybody else is doing).

    What we should aim for, is to have High Thinking; High Doing Marine Department Officers. Then, we can look into Innovation & Creativity, for transformation. I also believe this is the first step towards the formation of Experts Group of Marine Department.

  24. Saya amat mengalukan usaha tuan mewujudkan blog ini untuk meningkatkan keberkesanan Jabatan Laut dalam meningkatkan industri pelayaran dinegara kita ini.

    Semenjak beberapa tahun kebelakangan ini, saya melihat Kerajaan telah membina marina-marina awam (public marina) untuk kemudahan kapal layar dan bot rekreasi sebagai usaha untuk menggalakkan perkembangan aktiviti rekreasi dan pelancongan laut.

    Marina-marina yang dibina oleh Jabatan Laut menambahkan lagi kapasiti kemudahan kapal layar dan bot rekreasi yang diusahakan oleh swasta dan kelab pelayaran (yacht club). Selain daripada marina, mungkin ada kemudahan dan perkhidmatan yang lain, yang diperlukan oleh pelayar dan bot rekreasi.

    Saya berpendapat pelaburan Kerajaan yang tinggi dalam membina marina-marina ini tidak akan memberi pulangan yang tinggi sekiranya tiada usaha-usaha promosi dari pihak-pihak yang berkaitan seperti Lembaga Penggalakan Pelancongan Malaysia, pengusaha-pengusaha marina swasta, dan kelab pelayaran.

    Jabatan Laut, sebagai pengusaha marina awam, bersama-sama pemain-pemain industri yang lain, mesti menyediakan rancangan untuk meningkatkan aktiviti kapal layar dan bot rekreasi di negara ini. Saya percaya, aktiviti ini dapat memberi menfaat ekonomi sampingan kepada negara sekiranya ada kesungguhan untuk menjayakannya.

  25. Terima kasih Encik Nasir Khan diatas pandangan dan ulasan anda. Saya setuju bahawa lebih banyak usaha yang diperlukan untuk meningkatkan aktiviti bot rekreasi dan marine tourism di Malaysia.

    Pembinaan kemudahan marina-marina awam hanya salah satu langkah awal untuk menggalakkan perkembangan aktiviti ini. Instrumen perundangan yang berkaitan dengan aktviti kapal layar dan bot rekreasi ialah Akta Pendaftaran Kapal Layar Antarbangsa Langkawi 2003 (Langkawi International Yacht Registry).

    Mungkin antara langkah-langkah lain yang harus dilaksanakan untuk menjadikan Malaysia sebagai satu pusat aktiviti kapal layar di rantau ini ialah promosi yang lebih terancang dan lebih aggresif, meningkatkan keselamatan pelayaran kapal layar dan bot rekreasi di perairan Malaysia dan menyediakan panduan pelayaran yang lengkap khusus untuk pelayaran kapal layar dan bot rekreasi.

  26. dont you all get it???????? dont talk about any strategy yet if we dont have seafearess!!!!!!

    train seafearers first help them by giving opportunities... loan for study......ptptn mara epf bank loan what so ever so people can come to maritime kolej and become seafearers .... when we have more than 300 K seafearer ' s then we can talk about strategy..

  27. For any organisation to move forward, there must be a Strategic Plan, a plan to do something, achieve predetermined goals within a specified time frame. It is actually the focus of the organisation, to allocate resources and move people, hoping that the efforts will produce the right results.

    As local seafarers is one of the most discussed topics, I would say that, this issue must be given focus and be one of the important element in the Strategic Plan.

  28. Saya ingin memberi "pendapatan" dalam memantapkan pengurusan keselamatan perkapalan nasional. Bagi memastikan satu persekitaran yang dapat menjamin ketenteraman, keselamatan dan keyakinan awam untuk kehidupan yang sejahtera kita perlukan pekerja-pekerja yang mahir dan bertauliah. (NO SHORT CUT)
    Dasar pengurusan keselamatan perkapalan nasional dapat meningkatkan sistem pengangkutan awam yang bersepadu akan mudah dicapai dan selamat hanya apabila kita mampu melahirkan pekerja-pekerja disemua bidang maritim yang pada dasarnya memiliki kefahaman yang SATU (1 Malaysia).
    Maka Jabatan Laut wajib menjadi pemangkin dan peneraju untuk memastikan bahawa semua penjawat disetiap peringkat bermula dari Jabatan sendiri seterusnya hingga ke syarikat dan pengusaha pelabuhan bukan hanya memiliki TETAPI mempunyai ilmu yang mantap. Sesungguhnya manusia yang tiada ilmu diibaratkan seperti hidupnya ia dizaman jahiliah....

    Hentikan kerja jika kita hanya batuk ditangga sahaja.

    Universiti kita sepatutnya mampu melahirkan doktor-doktor maritim. ALAM sepatutnya sudah melahirkan pakarbina kapal, pakarbina engine, pakarbina alat navigasi, pakarbina sistem pengurusan, pakarbina ekonomi dan banyak lagi untuk melahirkan pesaingan bertaraf global, bukan asek-asek STCW jee. SUDAH buat kee??? kalau sudah saya pohon maaf noooo...Jangan melenting kay, saya orang tua cakap jee.
    Pelaut Malaysia dilupa jangan, asyik orang yang sama jee pergi kursus, hadir perjumpaan, tuu pun tak pandai-pandai, mangkin bodoh nampaknya.

  29. Saya rasa tak perlu pun nak dikaji-kaji lagi yang memerlukan masa bertahun-tahun dan menabur wang tak tentu arah,, at last nothing yang berlaku.
    x cukup ker pengalaman dan rungutan dari pelaut kita selama ini untuk dipelajari dan dijadikan tauladan meguruskan hal2 pelaut dan maritim. Saya cadangkan pelan strategik ini jikapun hendak diteruskan hendaklah lahir dari orang2 yang tidak berkepentingan dan ikhlas tanpa maksud lain yang tersirat dan menyeluruh disemua peringkat.Jika tidak pelan ini akan hanya mengundang lebih banyak masaalah sahaja.

  30. Dengan ikhlas hati, saya ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepada semua bloggers yang sudi menyumbang ide dan memberi pandangan di blog ini. Saya menerima ide dan pandangan dengan positif kerana saya beranggapan ide dan pandangan anda semua adalah untuk memantapkan industri perkapalan negara.

    Dari komen dan pandangan yang dipaparkan dalam blog ini, saya sudah dapat menilai isu-isu yang dibangkitkan dan saya mendapat arah tuju untuk kami menambahbaik prestasi dan penghasilan kami.

  31. Di malaysia telah ada universiti yg memperuntukkan pembelajaran yang boleh melahirkan pakar seni bina kapal,seafearer, pakar pembuatan kapal dan lain2..universiti yang mempunyai pengkhususan dalam bidang marine.tapi marine deprtment dan MQA amat sukar untuk meluluskan dan mengiktiraf kerana pelbagai alasan..sedangkan foreigner lebih mengiktiraf..

    Lagi satu,student2 juga sukar untuk mendapatkn tempat practikal(Latihan industri) dalam industri perkapalan ini kerana pihak MQA dan marine deprtment yg melambatkan pengiktirafan.

    apa yang nak disampaikan adalah pihak berkuase yg terlibat dalam mengaturkan dan meluluskan bidang pembelajaran dalam marine ini perlulah lebih concern dan "beri muke" agar industri marine shipping di negara kita lebih rancak dengan terhasilnya para pakar yang bertaraf universiti..


  32. Pada 3hb Jun 2010, Jabatan Laut melalui Kumpulan Wang Pusat Perdagangan Laut (KWPPL) telah menganjurkan satu seminar bertajuk “Seminar Menanggani Masalah Kekurangan Pelaut Malaysia’ yang telah diadakan dipusat latihan Jabatan Laut. Antara objektif penganjuran seminar ini adalah untuk memberi kesedaran kepada pihak syarikat perkapalan dan Institusi latihan maritim terhadap pentingnya penglibatan mereka dalam menangani isu kekurangan pelaut.

    Peserta seminar banyak mengutarakan kekangan untuk menyediakan tempat penginapan bagi kadet diatas kapal. Bagi kapal-kapal kecil seperti kapal jenis ‘tugboat’, ‘supply vessel’, tempat penginapan adalah terhad.

    Antara cadangan-cadangan untuk memudahkan proses latihan pelaut ialah menambah ‘training shipberth’ di kapal-kapal Malaysia. Sekiranya shipberth adalah terhad, kadet-kadet boleh menaiki kapal menjadi kelasi kapal tetapi latihan khusus diteruskan.

    Ini mungkin tidak dapat dilakukan dengan serta-merta dan perlu dirancang dengan baik. Adakah pemunya kapal Malaysia sanggup untuk menyediakan lebih banyak “training shipberth” diatas kapal-kapal mereka untuk memastikan bekalan pelaut tempatan berterusan?

  33. 1) when can Mardep really go FULL online system? there are some already in progress eg seamancard application/renewal, crew article but how about port clearence? can we try to synchronise all things into 1 system, saves all the time travel to Mardep office & long queue for the officers who sometimes are overloaded with work.
    2) officer incompetancy is another problem. they are slow at clearing work on table; with new online system, some of their typing speed is <3Knots..
    look at the mirror before we look at others' shortfall. Mardep must improve standard & quality of officers, then we can uplift to another higher level in many more aspects.

  34. Dear Lemonjus,

    Thank you for your refreshing comments. I agree that in today’s business environment, we have to adapt to changes, adapting our system, our work cultures and our products in order to survive and remain competitive. E-commerce and globalization are two of the external forces that we could not ignore.

    Over the years, Marine Department has invested in ICT nationwide, to provide online services to our customers. Now, we have to look into improving the efficiency of these online services, looking into integrating them as one e-service for the benefit of our customers.

    With regards to our front liners serving the public, I believe some retraining and motivational programme will put things in order and speed-up the delivery.

    I will bring this matter up to improve our delivery. Thank you

  35. we must strict and concentrate on building up new seafarers....pls government authorities like jabatan laut look seriously into this,....if make a survey thoroughout whole malaysia nobody know want is maritime is when we ask every body will answer owh APMM owh navy .. that's all....this seem government authorities has not concentrating on giving out the information about the career and the knowledge of maritime to the people..making all the people wont realize there is a one big career path which is still empty and hunger for student....................can we do something about this?
    where the roadshows and where is the media in this part??? do something starting with a forum in the television or put an issue to all talk show pls before there is no more the institutions of maritime i believe there is many as 18 institutions in our countries they also may collapse due to no student,..... help them not many know who is ALAM even.. pls everybody here unite together and lend your help...where is media electronic newspaper and all the people of 27 mil malaysian?

  36. one more thing............pls make a rule and be strict not to seafarers but to the shipping company.............NO EXCUSES TAKE LOCAL OUR OWN PEOPLE NOT FOREIGNERS

  37. Kerjaya sebagai pelaut atau kerjaya dalam bidang pengangkutan laut adalah merupakan salah satu kerjaya yang paling tidak diketahui umum. Pada hakikatnya Malaysia masih kekurangan pelaut tempatan, ini dapat dilihat dengan kehadiran pelaut asing berkerja di atas kapal Malayisa dan bot berlesen. Agensi yang bertanggungjawab dalam industri pengangkutan laut negara seharusnya bangun dan melihat perkara ini dengan lebih terperinci dan berusaha untuk membangunkan serta mempromosikan kerjaya dalam bidang ini dikalangan penduduk Malaysia. Negara jiran kita seperti Filipina mendapat pulangan dalam bentuk tukaran wang asing berpuluh juta dalam setahun hasil daripada industri ini. Pelaut Filipina berada hampir dalam semua kapal yang belayar diseluruh dunia. Pelaut ini menghantar balik wang untuk keluarga dan secara tidak langsung menyumbang kepada ekonomi negara berkenaan. Negara tersebut juga menyumbang kepada industri pengangkutan laut dunia. Perkara ini juga boleh dilakukan di Malaysia. Pertambahan jumlah pusat-pusat latihan pelaut dengan insentif tertentu dan penajaan kepada individu yang berminat menjadi pelaut boleh memberangsangkan kegiatan melatih dan mengeluarkan pelaut untuk pasaran tempatan dan antarabangsa. Tetapi seperti yang dinyatakan oleh rakan dalam Blog ini bila disebut Jabatan Laut orang akan keliru dengan APMM, Polis Marin dan Tentera Laut. Jabatan Laut seharusnya dikenali sebagai Jabatan Laut dan bukan sebagai agensi yang lain. Jabatan Laut sebagai agensi yang menetapkan standard latihan pelaut perlu melakukan sesuatu.

  38. Selaras dengan penyediaan Pelan Strategik, Jabatan Laut akan melalui satu proses transformasi termasuk penjenamaan semula bagi meningkatkan prestasi Jabatan Laut. Untuk memberi impak yang lebih berkesan, Jabatan Laut mesti membawa perubahan besar kepada industri perkapalan mengikut apa yang telah ditentukan dalam Pelan Strategik Jabatan Laut. Perubahan mestilah nyata dan jelas agar nama Jabatan Laut tersohor seantero.

    Saya telah melihat situasi pendidikan dan latihan pelaut di Filipina dan mendapat sedikit gambaran mengapa negara itu berjaya melahirkan ramai pelaut. Terdapat beberapa faktor kejayaan (success factor) dalam kerjaya pelaut Filipina, yang tidak wujud di Malaysia. Sama ada kita boleh menerimapakai amalan-amalan ini dan disesuaikan untuk keperluan kita, saya tidak pasti. Tetapi yang pasti, usaha untuk menggalakkan kerjaya pelaut di negara ini mesti diteruskan.

    Soal tajaan atau bantuan kewangan pelaut untuk mengikuti latihan ada dibangkitkan dalam Seminar Menanggani Masalah Kekurangan Pelaut Malaysia pada 3hb Jun 2010 yang lalu. Harap apa yang dirancang untuk kebaikan pelaut Malaysia akan menjadi kenyataan dan menghasilkan kejayaan

  39. I would like to response to blogger ana:
    The establishment of the e-Knowledge Centre is a brilliant idea. And also the compilation of the courses which was attended by the officer can be considered.

    But to begin with, I thinks it should start from the Training Institute(TI) itself. What I am trying to say is they are many courses were conducted by the TI throughout a year.So, during the course they can make a record of the lecturer presentation and then make a compilation to be stored in the database where every officer/staff can easily excess for reference.

  40. saya rasa tuan-tuan perlu lawati laman web persatuan maritim malaysia kerana saya merasakan mereka sedang membuat sesuatu untuk pelaut tidak setakat berkata2 sahaja.....

    saya dapati laman tersebut melalui laman FB!/pages/Persatuan-Maritim-Malaysia/173599859328686

    saya dapat merasakan sesuatu perubahan yang besar akan berlaku diatas usaha mereka......

  41. Ada yang dah berkursus 3 bulan pun tak naik2 kapal... betol ke tak diorang2 ni?

  42. Setiap tahun lebih dari 150,000 anak-anak kita tamat pengajian tingkatan 5. Ibu bapa kepada lebih dari 70,000 anak-anak tersebut sanggup bersusah payah sampai berhutang piutang untuk anak mereka mendapatkan tempat di IPT.
    Setelah tamat menuntut, 3 hingga 7 tahun kemudian anak-anak itu mendapati mereka terpaksa menganggur bertahun tahun atau pun berlumba-lumba pula mendapatkan pekerjaan.
    Gejala sosio mula memuncak melibatkan anak-anak muda ini. Sebahagian besar mereka dipaksa bersaing dengan pekerja warga asing. Keuntungan jangka masa pendek dan kekurangan ilmu teknikal menyebabkan ramai anak-anak muda negara dipaksa mengharungi masa depan yang penuh kekalutan.
    Kerjaya sebagai pelaut begitu mudah, hanya dalam tempoh 10 hari mengikuti latihan asas keselamatan, seorang anak muda yang sihat tubuh badan dan berusia 18 tahun keatas akan mendapat tempat diatas kapal dagang.
    Puluhan anak muda telah mendapat tempat diatas kapal atas usaha bersama persatuan dengan sebuah syarikat manning dan sebuah akademi tempatan yang baru ditubuhkan.
    Hanya dalam tempuh kurang dari 6 bulan kesemua mereka telah berjaya mendapat pekerjaan dengan gaji lebih dari RM 1,500. Terkecuali dari cukai pendapatan, tempat tinggal disediakan, makan minum disediakan.
    Anak muda yang keluar Universiti dengan degree pun baru dapat RM 1,200. Pergi Universiti pun kumpul hutang keliling pinggang, kan bagus pergi belajar untuk 10 hari jee dengan harga kursus RM 2,900 dah dapat sijil yang diiktiraf oleh badan maritim antarabangsa. 10 tahun kemudan dah jadi Master NCV atau Chief Engineer NCV, gaji RM XX,XXX.XX.
    Tentu ramai anak muda dapat membezakan yang mana permata yang mana kaca.

    Marilah kita sama-sama (buang ego dan pangkat kita tu) mengambil seberapa banyak anak-anak muda menjadi pelaut-pelaut, besar pahala tu. Kalau betul perangkaan jabatan bahawa lebih 70,000 pelaut yang mendapat gaji purata RM 6,000. Maka sejumlah RM 420 juta gaji sebulan mengalih entah kemana tu, setahun RM 5 billion tuuu (Budget satu kementerian tuuu....)
    Banyak anak-anak nelayan, petani, buruh dan mak bapak boleh beli rumah, kereta etc. Hidup Giant, TESCO, Jaya Jusco, Chow Kit, etc. Hidup pelaut!!!!
    Hai banyakan Captain/Chief Engineer dari rakyat Msia, kan senang kerja Tuan Empunya kapal, Banyak lah duit tuan empunya seafarer card, Naiklah ekonomi training center. Wow semua orang senang dan untung berlipat kali gandalah, negara maju maritim katakan. Jauh lagi perjalanan kita rupanya. Ingat dah pandai, dah tahu semua, rupanya masih mundur maritim rupanya...


  43. Pelaut-pelaut sekelian, marilah kita meriahkan blog ini... mari mari mari hebohkan blog ini.

  44. really nice blog thanks for sharing with us;.The culture of blogging to share views and knowledge may be new to some. Jobs on Ships>

  45. saya nk cari company malaysia yg blh buat kapal kargo segera call sy sham email

  46. Cadangan drastik:

    a) Adakan undang-undang untuk Had Gaji minima Pelaut Tempatan.

    b) Kuatkuasakan DSL sepenuhnya. Mana syarikat yang mengaji pelaut tidak memenuhi keperluan DSL. Tarik dan batalkan.

    c) Manning untuk semua kapal terlibat dalam O&G - rakyat Malaysia sepenuhnya.

    d) Jangan layan sangat alasan owner - tak ada krew tempatan!

  47. assalamualikum,
    saya shamsuddin dari johor bahru,di sini saya ingin bersuara tentang lepasan pelajar2 maritime yg baru tamat pegajian terlalu susah utk mendapatkan perkerjaan di syarikat2 perkapalan terutama sekali syarikat perkapalan malaysia sendiri.mereka telah banyak kehabisan wang utk pegajian/kursus pelaut demi cita2,bangsa dan negara. tetapi jabatan atau kerajaan tidak mengambil peka serta isentif terhadap mereka2 ini.contohnya kenapa sebuah kapal hanya 1/2 org shj dan selebihnya bangsa yg bukan rakyat malaysia.mcm mana kemajuaan industri perlautan hendak menjadi negara maritime sebenar-benarnya.cadangan saya:
    1.kerajaan atau jabatan harus menghadkan syarikat perkapalan pengambilan kelasi kapal dari negara luar.
    2.pemohonan kerja dari pelajar2 maritime/kursus maritime harus di utamakan.
    3.jabatan atau kerajaan harus menyediakan imformasi jawatan kosong daripada syarikat2 perkapalan di dalam blog internet atau di jabatanperlautan.

  48. tahniah kpd jbtn laut dan krajaan krn telah berusah utk mnaik taraf pelaut malaysia.kami sbgai pelaut mngucapkn ribuan trima kasih.namun setelah brusaha dan myahut cabaran jbatn laut dan telah lulus ujian wke nc,wko nc pn susah nk naik pangkat,kenapa?warga asing jgk yg di ambil krn lbh mngungtungkn(murah).jd tak guna la kami habiskn wang ringgit sthun 2thn blum nmpk hasil
