Proposed Maritime Safety Management System Regulations, 2021

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Since 2009, Transport Canada has worked with the Canadian marine industry and the public on using safety management systems in the marine sector. A safety management system is a set of procedures, goals, and responsibilities that help manage safety in the workplace. It helps reduce accidents and reduce human error, as well as prepare for, and respond to, emergencies.

Through consultation and a detailed cost-benefit analysis, Transport Canada has developed a realistic and affordable proposal for adding safety management system requirements to more Canadian vessels.
