A risk assessment is one vital element of an comprehensive health and safety management on board of a yacht. Its main objective is to determine the measures required to comply with statutory duty and associated regulations and therefore, reduce the level of incidents and accidents on board a yacht.
The i.b.s.® High-Risk Areas risk assessment will protect yourself, your family and guests as well your crews and high-value assets. We will also help you to comply with international rules and regulations while giving the ability to identify hazards, and categorize and evaluate risks.
These abilities will allow a ‘suitable and sufficient’ risk assessment to be conducted on board of your yacht.
As a short overview, the i.b.s.® risk assessment for yacht and superyachts using our own BSSA contains steps to:
• Identify hazards
• Decide who might be harmed on board and how an incident could occur
• Evaluate the risks and choose on “control” measures
• Record our findings and implement them
• Review and update the current assessment
Ports, land destinations and open seas are areas that present a variety of hazard levels. Therefore masters, owners and operators of yachts should bear in mind that a previous risk assessment should be reviewed and updated regularly or whenever there are any changes taking place regarding the yacht’s ownership, location, crew or similar.
We hope that this small overview has given you more insight into why risk assessment should be vital to any individual on board but as well as to your high-value assets and lifestyle. We would be happy to talk with you in person about an effecient implementation of the i.b.s.® BSSA that could help you and your assets to be more secure and eliminate any possible existing weak points that your yacht may have.
