Know the risks on board your tender
Some of the risks to consider include: risk of injury while launching and retrieving, overloading, risk of falling overboard, risk of capsizing or swamping, and the potential for trips and falls.
All commercial tender operations need a Safety Management System (SMS).
A key part of your SMS is the steps for risk assessment. These include:
- List the key activities associated with the tender operation.
- What could go wrong when undertaking these activities?
- What steps do I take to make sure those things don’t go wrong?
- List who is responsible to make sure the steps are followed.
