Marine Risk Management Training

At your office, online or in Southampton

The Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC) recommends that Harbour Authorities and marine facilities operate under a Marine Safety Management System (MSMS) to reduce risk to As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP).

Marine risk management is an integral part of any MSMS, and underpins the guiding ethos of the PMSC.

A comprehensive understanding of hazards, risks and mitigations within the marine environment allows for effective identification and control. Robust risk management provides a safe and efficient operation, fulfilling the requirements of the PMSC and promoting industry best practice.

Course overview

This course provides a systematic framework for the categorisation and control of marine risk.

Our experienced Maritime team provide examples from across the industry to give context to risk control mechanisms and their application to different forms of marine facility.

Through this course, ports, harbours and marine facilities will be able to understand the risks under their responsibility, and how to control them and mitigate to the ALARP principle.
