keeping northern australia connected

Health, Safety, Environment and Quality

Sea Swift operates in some of the most remote and pristine areas of northern Australia.  As such Health, Safety, Environment and Quality are key drivers for the organisation.  Our objective is to be the leader in the marine industry under Health, Safety, Environment and Quality. Accreditation has been achieved for:

  • OHSAS 18001: Occupational Health & Safety Standard - through a dedicated HSEQ team and a readily accessible platform across marine & shoreshide employees, contractors and visitors.
  • AS/NZS 4801: Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems - through best practice design, implementation and training both internal & external with continued statistical reporting to achieve excellence.
  • ISO 14001: Environmental Management - this is vital when operating in and through the Great Barrier Reef, Torres Straits Quarantine zone and Arafura Sea.  Our key environmental challenges are energy conservation, waste management, hydrocarbon management and operating in environmentally sensitive land and sea areas;
  • ISO 9001: Quality Management System - through a range of customer and operational interfaces to ensure our service aligns with all required legislation and best practice as well as our drive to be as effective and efficient as possible.  Some key aspects for accreditation under the Quality Management System include HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) food safety control, on-time performance, stowage averages and customer specific planning and delivery.

Accreditation was achieved in September 2016.
