The aim of the HSSE Committee is to share experience and information to promote good working practices in the areas of Health, Safety, Security and the Environment.
Safety has been at the centre of our work since our early beginnings in 1972, starting in the Diving Sector and expanding to all areas of Marine Contracting. Our activities are therefore broad ranging and cover all safety aspects of our industry sector. Our Committee has been instrumental in bringing together leading HSE professionals over a long period of time. The Committee addresses improvements and best practices across all health, safety, marine security and operational environmental subjects and continues to make a significant contribution to keeping our industry safe.
Our Safety Flash system is highly successful in quickly informing our whole membership with details of safety incidents that are shared by our members for the benefit of everyone in our industry.
