by the sounds of it this is a land based group/person or similar applying a tick sheet type check list with a view to using your operation.
As others have said you can do all the risk assessments etc your self, If it needs to be in a particular format then you can also do this.
THere are various marine based safety systems(ie ISM and Domestic safety management plan) that you could look at to make your procedures more in line with marine safety policy, but these are basicly not suitable for your type of operation. you can however look up info on the MCA Website
You could employ a marine surveyor/ consultant to look at your operation and do a safety procedures audit but I dont know of many who this for your type of operation..

Just a few thoughts really

I went alongside the carrier, I survived and didnt even get shot at!!!

Steve, we all have H/S policy docs and I reguarly do my own and update them according to new information (i.E someone elses misfortunes from MAIB reports). I guess a generic risk assessment is what is required for your operations.

If you find this could be used by other operators then let me know as I would be interested in costings for an outside assessment and docs and if it worked out I would work with you on it including costs.

Steve - I'll make some calls Monday as I used to have several companies that would come in & do this for all sorts of risks for me on the liability side. Or your current broker should be able to suggest ? ( I'd hope so anyway !)

As others have said - I never heard of anyone needing to be qualifed to do it and we used to actively suggest the best person to do this stuff are the people in the 'trade' - not someone who does not understand the risks.

You could always ask your insurers to carry out a liability survey of the operation? That way you are showing a good attitude to reducing risk/ good moral hazard etc and getting them to carry the responsibility !

I hold a NEBOSH General Certificate and operate as a self employed consultant. I have quite a bit of risk assessment experience having just retired form the Fire & Rescue Service. I am also a RIB owner and diver.

Happy to have a chat, PM me if you still need help.
