Cameron Broadfoot started this petition to International Maritime Organisation and

The maritime industry is responsible for over 80% of world trade, medicines, technology and food are all transported by ships. For many even in the maritime industry thinking about what happens after a ship has reached it's end life, isn't thought about or even talked about enough and when researched i'm sure many will be shocked.  

This purpose of this petition is to see a change in the maritime industry. Ship breaking is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and many ship owners take  advantage of Asian countries, due to the lack of health and safety and cheap labour available to gain more profit for selling their ship. Although lack of transparency is the cause of many problems in the maritime industry, these unethical practices must be stopped as daily workers die and get injured for as little as 34p a day, some these also include children. 

The European Union has looked at enforcing new policies and legislation to tackle the unethical issue, however my research has proven that this is not effective enough.  

 My proposal through this petition is to set up a new international organisation which will govern the overall ship life  from construction to recycling. The new organisation will set policies and legislation and also be able to enforce these policies so that every country has good practice. The organisation created will also provide support for stakeholders and ship owners throughout the whole ship life. When proposed to both ship owners and directors of ship recycling my report  found that this will benefit the whole industry.
