Shipboard Safety Officer Notes
The main role of a Safety Officer is to act as a focal point for all occupational health and safety matters arising onboard ship, although the role is advisory and does not actually carry the company's responsibility for health and safety
While to many people this will seem a daunting task, the book outlines clearly how the Safety Officer can respond to that role and deal with the duties in a professional manner.
This book provides a clear and 'no-nonsense' guide to the responsibilities and will focus on what you need to know to perform this position and help you in developing a good safety culture onboard. It will discuss how to approach the tasks that you will be presented with, what they might mean and some of the implications or actions that may result from them.
