Marine Responsible Person – Rev0 – July 2020

This document is a guideline for training organisations, duty holders and offshore personnel to help achieve consistent safe management of marine operations within the 500 metre safety zone and is a result of concerns raised by HSE and regulating bodies as to the number of collision incidents inside installation safety zones by attendant vessels.
