With the clear Risk-based approach to safety advocated by the Work in Fishing convention, the development of the crewSAFE program was the next logical step for the Foundation.
crewSAFE provides the framework for a comprehensive risk-based Safety Management System, from initial hazard identification through to long term risk management.
crewSAFE is a risk based rating program, designed to provide the user with an effective Safety Management System (SMS) framework, which can be systematically introduced and audited on any fishing vessel. This practical set of guidelines provides an easy path to implementation, and allows for objective measuring of individual crew performance against the required standard.
- crewSAFE consists of 6 chapters, divided into some 63 elements.
Each element has a number of potential sub elements - each of which can be separately audited as appropriate to the vessels operation.
These sub-elements are rated for compliance using a simple rating system.
The Overall rating is a percentage figure of the actual performance against the total possible for that element.
A clear indication of potential problem areas is identified, providing an objective base for which to compare the next audit to.
