Marine Safety Expert

Risk Assessment and Management

There are numerous risks in marine operations that can lead to losses, project delays and cost overruns. MCA specialises in the systematic identification, assessment and management of marine risk.

De-risking Marine Operations

MCA helps to de-risk marine operations from mobilisation to demobilisation. We identify what can go wrong, and review the proposed risk controls to develop comprehensive emergency/contingency plans and identify any additional specific mitigations that are required. We can quantify the risk and simulate the proposed operations to assess likely variability in overall duration and cost, predict losses and show the sensitivity to programme delays, equipment failure and weather.

De-risking Marine Transportation

We support ship owners, charterers and insurance companies by attending loading and unloading operations of major components and to advise on lashing and securing.

Safety Management

Safety in offshore projects is paramount. Risks need to be identified, assessed, controlled and mitigated within the structure of robust and defensible safety management systems. MCA has developed safety management systems across a wide range of marine industries.

Safety Assessment

MCA has extensive experience in safety assessment including hazard identification, hazard and operability studies, safety critical system assessment, writing safety procedures and developing justifications and cases.
