Safety Management System

Improve your safety culture

All Domestic Commercial Vessel operators in Australia are required to have a documented Safety Management System (SMS) in place. The basis for a SMS is Part E of the National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NSCV). With a Safety Management System (SMS) you will gain insight into the quality of the safety culture in your operation and provide specific and practical recommendations for an improved safety culture.
