Vessels of 15 metres and over:
We have developed an application to enable fishing vessel owners and skippers to complete your own Risk Assessment and create a Safety Statement for your vessel.
This application is available on CD by request from Ray Murray, phone 01 2144 187 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will provide instruction on the use of the application and ongoing support.
Fishing vessels of 15 metres and under:
We are developing a risk assessment booklet and guidance document to assist fishing vessels of 15 metres and under, with three or less working onboard to create a safety statement. This service will be available soon.
Why do I need a safety statement?
- Carrying out a risk assessment helps you to identify any dangers (hazards) in advance and to rate them acording to the level of risk.
- You can eliminates, or at least minimise the risk of hazzards by putting in place controls, detailed in a written programme - your Safety Statement.
- A Safety Statement may help meet your vessel's insurance requirements.
