DESCRIPTION

A number of initiatives have been undertaken to highlight potential hazards on the Britannia Beaver and to ensure that contractors who board the vessel have a formal induction. The initiatives include:

1.Hazardous areas are demarcated by red paint on hand rails and gates
2.Gates are fitted with warning notices explaining the hazard
3.Contractors are alerted to the hazardous areas during their induction
4. Contractors cannot enter unless they are escorted by a crew member and have been authorised by the Master or Chief Engineer.

BENEFITS

These initiatives have facilitated the effective management of the risks to both the crew and contractors. A potentially confusing array of hazards has been made clear in a simple manner and contractors no longer enter hazardous areas inadvertently.
