Prior to commencing a marine charter, an HSE inspection and safety brief must be completed to ensure the vessel in question is fit to undertake all tasks. The inspection is a sampling of the vessel’s systems to identify any defects that will then be reported. The survey is to ensure that the vessel is fit for purpose in the works she is to perform or if any maintenance is required before operation. Once on site our experienced team will complete the HSE inspection and brief the Captain and crew on the procedures to be employed when on project location.
The vessel charterer should ensure the inspector of the vessels is fully familiar with the vessels’ requirements on the project for the voyage, especially issues that the inspector is to bring up directly with the Master. At the same time as the inspection takes place, a safety briefing would be given along with a pack containing all relevant charterer’s procedures, manuals, installation data cards, reporting procedures, etc.
Once our inspection is completed the result of the inspection is immediately relayed to the charterer along with any recommendations regarding suitability of the vessels, these recommendations are highlighted on-board the vessels and signed for by the Master and the inspector. The full report on the inspection is then issued to the client and stakeholders once completed.
