Safety Management System

The design and implementation of Base Marines Safety Training and Environmental Management System (STEMS) has been influenced by Base Marines particular business environment and risks associated with that environment. All of our management systems are independently accredited to ISO/AS standards and we hold certifications in ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and AS4801. In addition, the system has been structured to support the varying needs of the business, its particular objectives, the services it provides, the processes it employs and its size and organisational structure.

The foundation of the system is built on four key founding principles:

  • Leadership
  • Workforce involvement
  • Risk-based approach
  • Performance monitoring

The system incorporates twelve (12) key individual elements that make up Base Marines STEMS programme

  1. Planned inspection programmes
  2. Procedures, guidelines, standards and plans
  3. Rules and work permits
  4. Competent workforce
  5. Communicating safety, health and environmental issues
  6. Risk management
  7. Accident and incident reporting
  8. Emergency preparedness
  9. Maintenance management
  10. Monitoring performance
  11. Environmental management
  12. Quality management

Base Marine is proud of its LTI free record since our inception in 2013.
