Safety & Security

IF YOU THINK SAFETY IS EXPENSIVE, TRY HAVING AN ACCIDENT

Amid an unending sea of acronyms have come over 40 conventions and 800 codes dealing with the safety, security, and pollution issues of the maritime industry, including:

  • SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea), which was started in 1914 in response to the tragic sinking of the Titanic
  • IMO (the International Maritime Organization), which was established in 1959 by the United Nations
  • ISM (International Safety Management)
  • ISPS (International Ship and Port Safety)

A vessel's compliance can be achieved with the hands-on experience and tools used by our knowledgeable professionals. Fairport Yacht Support is here to navigate your way through the industry standards. We have a certified IMO auditor on staff to conduct the required annual audits. Our IMO manager supports each vessel with the compulsory reviews and updates the certifying organization requires.
