• People – the importance of correct manning, keeping your skills up to date and the safe management of commercial vessels.
• Vessel – the compulsory carriage and maintenance of safety equipment and how to create and implement risk control and operating procedures.
• Purpose – making sure your vessel is suitable and legal for the work you are carrying out, your obligations in protecting the environment, appropriate planning and situational awareness.
