That's just your HSE guy trying to be important and make sure he gets a bigger office/ consultancy fees. Or maybe to get evrybody about thinking about Risk assesment
We have to do lot's of Risk assesments out here but we do as many generic ones as we can. The reason I am employed as a coxswain is to prove the point come any incident that the company have employed a competent and suitably qualified person to crash sorry drive the boat.
What we do is write the risk assesment points and laminate it then we right our daily checks and wind, tide, sea state in Chinagraph on top of the Laminate and sign it. It takes two minutes and were covered we rub it out the next day and start again. That should satisfy The Harbour Masters
