Risk Management Statement
I, Morgan Andrews, Manager and Director of Jervis Bay Sea Sports Pty Ltd, am the Designated Person as per National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NSCV) and the WHS Act and associated Regulations.
I am also the principle controller of the premises.
I have conducted an assessment of risks associated with Jervis Bay Sea Sports operations and its commercial operations as per the requirements of the WHS Act.
The Staff of Jervis Bay Sea Sports (known collectively as the Crew), have had the opportunity to review and comment on the draft of this document, the Safety Management Systems for the boats, the Safe Work Method Statements and their feedback has been assessed and utilized as appropriate to form the final version.
Dive Jervis Bay’s risk assessment and management process is modelled on requirements of AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 and a risk register has been established to record identified risks and summarise measures taken to eliminate or effectively control them.
The outcome of the assessments are included in the Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for the necessary operational tasks.
All current risks (At the time of writing) are recorded in the company's Safety Management Systems, and make up the findings in the Assessment of Risk. These have been individually assessed and controlled as possible and this process has been documented as part of our commitment to safety.
The on-going process for reporting hazards and incidents is included within the staff training processes and is full accepted as a shared responsibility by all staff. This forms the basis of the on-going review process which will occur in response to any incident or near miss.
A formal review will be undertaken on an annual basis and be carried out in consultation with the Crew as detailed within the Safety Management Systems for Jervis Bay Sea Sports.
