Subsea training Centre Health and Safety Policy

Safety is the responsibility of every individual & no job or service is so important or urgent that we cannot take the time to perform work safely.

INTRODUCTION:
The diverse activities conducted through and by this facility are all in the medium to high risk category. There is a requirement that necessary background theory is imparted to all students, staff, tutors, guides, supervisors, and other individual members of the public who visit, join, or formally enrol to take part in any of these activities.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 requires that the Sub Sea Training Centre (PCBU),-MUST ensure so far a reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers who work or are engaged by the PCBU, whilst the workers are at work on all sites. We are directly responsible for all individuals, workers and visitors on our sites at any time whilst they are under our direct control. We must ensure that individuals are comfortable and can demonstrate a satisfactory level of competence prior to engaging in any activities that could lead to injury. Our company philosophy is that all staff (both full/Contractor and / or part time) are safety-first focused at all times and will follow all company policies and procedures to the letter.
