Health and Safety
The way we see it, our job revolves around health and safety.
Our role is to get our clients and their vessels where they need to be in safety, which is why it is always our first concern with each and every job.
As many of our crewmembers have decades of experience in the workboat industry, we have seen first-hand how important health and safety is. For this reason, we have been working alongside the National Workboat Association to implement the Voluntary Towage Endorsement Scheme, which works to create a nationally recognised ship assist qualification and produces manuals to ensure that members have the safety information they need.
Alongside our focus on health and safety, completing our tasks quickly and with minimal cost is also of vital concern to our clients. At SMS, we have made great efforts to ensure that we can provide the speed of service and competitive pricing our clients require without ever sacrificing the health and safety aspects of the work. This is achieved through our continuous manning and warm engine protocol – enabling our experienced crew with tried and tested procedures to keep our tugs ever ready for mobilisation.
