Section 2

This Safety Management System (SMS) was developed to comply with Queensland law and National Standards. The owner and master must keep and maintain operating documents that serve as a Safety Management System for the vessel to assist with achieving their General Safety Obligation. 

This Safety Management System is a live and active document. It is the responsibility of the Master, Owner and Crew to ensure that it is kept up to date and is an accurate reflection of the vessel and its operation. 

As per the National Standards for Commercial Vessels (NSCV) Part E, Chapter 4, this SMS is designed as a tool to assist compliance with the NSCV and mandatory Occupational Health and Safety obligations.  

The objective of this SMS is to enhance the safe operation of the vessel and provide a safe working environment. All crew are expected to comply with safety and pollution prevention regulations and procedures at all times, and take the necessary precautions in the interests of human life, property and the environment. 

Section 3 Contains out of date sample documents which used to apply when Marine Safety Queensland issued restricted coxswains to school teachers.
