Vessels are required to be operated in a safe manner, it is the responsibility of the owners/skippers of fishing vessels to ensure that they are compliant with the “The Merchant Shipping and Fishing Vessels (Health and Safety at Work) regulations 1997”
A safety management system is structured from a risk assessment, this involves considering risks to health and safety onboard a fishing vessel, and applying control and mitigation measures to prevent or reduce the risks.
The safety management system can be constructed in a paper based folder or via the Seafish Industry website page www.safetyfolder.co.uk ,which has been especially created for the UK legal requirements. The website is simple to use and has many advantages over the paper folder including free support and onboard visits once registered and filled in.
