The seminar also served as a platform to provide good training and to enhance the seafarers’ knowledge on safety operations. Among the points of discussion were vetting inspection, guidance for compliance with the 2020 'Global Sulphur Cap', updates on MLC and MARINA, mental health awareness, common human errors onboard, and proper first-aid training.

As a way of showing appreciation for the invaluable contribution of its Filipino officers and crew members, Asahi Tanker held a Crew and Family Day where twenty (20) awardees were honored and recognized for their loyalty and outstanding performance onboard. The gathering also gave vacationing crew and their families a chance to bond together and build good relationship with their fellow crew.
