Health, Safety & Environmental Policy


Briggs Marine & Environmental Services provide a range of marine services to our clients. The environments in which we operate are dynamic and challenging and risks are both real and significant.

Our vision is No Harm to people, No Harm to the environment.

Protection of the health, safety, and welfare of our employees and those who may be affected by our activities is of paramount importance to us. We will work closely with our employees and other stakeholders to go beyond our legal obligations to prevent pollution and protect the environment. We will implement the lifecycle principle to our activities with an aim to reduce waste, increase material recovery, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase energy efficiency. The company is committed to continual improvement of its HSE systems.

To ensure HSE performance is always given the highest priority our specific HSE commitments are to:

  • Provide strong and consistent HSE leadership
  • Develop HSE champions
  • Fulfil legal requirements and any other identified requirements

Ensure the consultation and participation of workers, and, where they exist, workers representatives:

  • Consistently implement industry good practice
  • Ensure staff are appropriately trained, competent, and supervised to fulfil their role safely
