Risk control and prevention measures

  • Establish measures to protect against all identified risks
  • Improve the safety management skills of personnel

The quality assurance and safety system includes:
  • A safety and environmental protection policy
  • Instructions and procedures for ensuring safe vessel operation and environmental protection in compliance with Canadian and international law
  • Clearly defined authority levels and communication channels between land and shipboard personnel
  • Procedures for reporting accidents, incidents, and noncompliance with ISM Code provisions
  • Emergency readiness procedures
  • Internal and external auditing procedures
Shipboard personnel training procedures
