Cover yourself in Paper.!!!!

We now live in a society of claims for this that and stuff nobody has thought of yet.

While reading through the forum this section seems there are a large number of ways to make a claim.

The building industry is still in the game of building but every single item even down to loading a skip with stripped off wall paper has to be covered.

Even this very simple task requires a risk and method statement.

Yes sounds stupid I know ...

The risk to the public the employees and the environment are all catered for and considered in these documents.

The purpose of it is to protect all of the above the best one can.And to avoid where possible both claims to employees and the operating company in a legal manner...Hence the title cover yourself in paper.

So the question is this.

If an engine blows up or drops off the rear of the boat or something impossible happens
have you as a commercial operator covered yourself.
for the protection on the public your employee and the environment you rely on.?

I guess as an induction you would cover such things as .....

Man overboard and what to do and how you would recover somebody.
The event of fire.
A breakdown.
Rough weather.
The use of life jackets and how the work.
First aid. and whom will administer it.
General items around the boat and what there for.

All time consuming and cost you loss of earnings.
However the mention of risk and method statements may also be a good idea..

Your comments on what you may well deem as total cr*p are welcome
