SVS Health Safety Security Environment and Quality Program

SVS work to create a sustainable safety culture that meets internationally recognised standards across the fleet, industry and region of operations.

SVS recognizes that building a ‘best in class’ operation requires a committed and inclusive approach to HSSEQ. Protecting our personnel, vessels and clients throughout their full scope of operations is paramount in the way that we conduct our business. Charterers and clients have come to expect this approach from SVS and find our attitude of transparency and continual improvement conducive to their own HSSEQ culture.

Safety Awareness and Risk Reduction

Safety Awareness and Risk Reduction is a fundamental part of our way of operating. SVS adhere to a strict vessel audit schedule and all vessels are routinely audited under the IMCA CMID system of vessel assurance. SVS are implementing OVMSA standard practices across our operations having complied with internal and external audit requirements. As a supplier of vessels to the Oil and Gas industry, OGP standard is the benchmark for our operation and SVS welcomes audit against this and client standards.

Flag State and Class regulations are monitored closely by our Designated Person Ashore who works in tandem with the HSSEQ department to ensure the highest possible standards are maintained.

Company HSSEQ Initiative

SVS run a program of safety initiatives designed to promote HSSEQ awareness. Every quarter, the Senior Management Team review safety performance and, subsequent to findings, ensure that HSSEQ awareness campaigns are targeted to meet tangible benefit.

Our HSSEQ team work closely with our DPA and Operations department to conduct inspections on vessels and to assist the Senior Management Team and Board in ensuring continued support for safety awareness and safety in operations.
