I am very experienced in bridging documentation and HSEQQ adaption and implementation with reference to vessel charterers and SSM and vessel certification surveys e.g. OVID and oil major surveys.
I have full understanding of TBT/PTW systems and offshore safe working practice, be it via COSWOP or other codes.
In terms of Risk Assessment, again, through work experience and Safety Officer certification, I am fully versed in offshore work.
I hold unlimited DP qualifications with ample experience in several types of vessel including Platform support, ROV, offshore construction, Jack-Up barges and survey work.
In terms of DP at my own initiative and expense I completed the DP induction and advanced courses at the Italian Maritime Academy of Technologies. I successfully completed the Advanced Operator Course August 2011.
I was the first Irish or British Officer to do so in Italy.
In Sept. 2012 I was awarded my DP Unlimited operator certificate.
Since then I have twice been the SDPO during DP installations.
June 2013 I attained HLO and HFF (HERTL) qualifications with CEPS in France. I was the first Anglophone person to achieve this.
In November 2012 I attained standard Ship Security Officer (SSO) certification. In addition to the standard SSO course I undertook additional specialised anti-piracy training.
