    beyond 12 hours

    Hello.

    Seafarers may be required to perform duty rosters up to a maximum of 12 hours per day. Due regard will be taken of the lay-over period to maximize the opportunity for extending rest periods to those crew members who may have been required to work maximum hours during the relevant week. This will be at the sole discretion of the captain. In circumstances where it is necessary to work beyond 12 hours maximum, the appropriate rate of overtime will apply.

    Does beyond 12 hours mean more than or in excess of 12 hours?

    Do you agree?

    The above is a fragment of text from my acquaintance's husband, which is very important to him.

    Thank you.

    Re: beyond 12 hours

    Yes, if they have to work more than 12 hours in one shift, the extra hours will attract whatever the overtime rate is.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: beyond 12 hours

    Say:

    Seafarers (Sailors?) may be required to perform their duties up to a maximum of 12 hours a day.

    And:

    In circumstances where it is necessary to work beyond the 12 hour maximum, the appropriate rate of overtime will apply.

    Yes, "beyond 12 hours" means "more than" or "in excess of" 12 hours.
