Health, Safety, Environment & Quality

Health & Safety

The health and safety of our employees, contractors, visitors and clients is core to the way we do business. Our operations are underpinned by our Target 365 culture – our relentless commitment to the systematic management of health, safety and environmental management.

Our comprehensive suite of policies and procedures mandate activity across all of our operations.

During the 2019 financial year, MMA’s Total Recordable Case Frequency Rate (TRCF) was 0.53 per million hours worked. When compared to our industry and the industries in which we support, our TFCF is a world class performance and shows, that safety is embedded in our culture. Despite the downturn, we have remained focussed on operational excellence which is driving MMA’s TRCF. The result confirms the effectiveness of our Target 365 approach as we continue to evolve and produce sustainable improvements in safety culture and performance.

MMA is a regular contributor to industry health and safety forums and now represents the Asia Pacific Region on the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) Global HSSE Committee.

MMA remains committed to achieving the highest standard of environmental performance across all of its business activities. MMA maintained environmental certification and all licences required during FY2019. We also, reduced the use of single use plastics across our operations by implementing new potable water systems on our vessels and providing multi-use drink containers across the fleet. We will continue to focus on finding ways to reduce our environmental impact.


MMA’s integrated management system is certified to ISO 9001: 2015 in Australia and Internationally. We also hold ISO 18001 and ISO 14001 certification in our International business. MMA has refined our vessel Safety Management Systems (SMS) to ensure Companywide efficiency and reduced the number of vessel SMS’s from three to one.

MMA is also a supporter and contributor to the Offshore Vessel Management and Self-Assessment (OVMSA) programme which was developed by Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) as a tool to improve management systems.
