Document Type: Monograph
It is the policy of the NRA in its marine activities, both sea-going vessels and smaller boats, to take all reasonably practicable steps to safeguard personnel and provide safe equipment, safe systems of work and trained competent crews, in a safe working and living environment. In the case of all NRA vessels/boats the Master/Skipper has delegated responsibility for all matters within their control, to ensure that all health and safety matters are given the fullest consideration at all stages of work. In turn all other employees forming part of the crew both permanent and temporary are expected to co-operate in the carrying out of this Code of Practice and ensure that they do not endanger themselves or others by their acts or omissions. This report focuses on the vessels type II to V: Type II Boats capable of operating in coastal waters up to and including the six mile limit; Type III - Boats operating in estuaries and inshore up to the tidal limits; Type IV - Boats operating in non-tidal rivers and still waters; Type V Low powered and non-powered boats for use in still waters and other river locations.
