Operators are under pressure like never before and just keeping up with business and operations is hard let alone trying to keep your SMS and crew training requirements up to date.
We’ve developed a unique range of managed services to take the stress, worry and time involvement away from you and free up your time and focus on what you need to.
Something to remember is…just because you tick the AMSA box doesn’t mean you have the adequate legal protection when you need it most and that’s where we come in.
Our managed service options start with complete management of your SMS and related documentation and allow you to add in other services to provide a comprehensive management plan.
Shorlink’s SMS Management is designed to get your SMS compliant and make sure it stays that way.
The basic service includes:
- Ensuring all crew and other staff are inducted into your SMS
- Monitoring AMSA for changes relevant to your vessel and operations
- Updating your SMS where required and updating the Revisions and Review Log
- Undertaking Annual Reviews and completing the Revisions and Review Log
- A review of induction documents
- A review of training records
- A review of follow-up documents
- A review of your vessels Log Book
- Communications with AMSA where required in relation to your SMS
This is a very cost-efficient service that takes the worry away from you about keeping your SMS up to date and compliant at all times.
