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.

During the 2020 financial year, MMA’s Total Recordable Case Frequency Rate (TRCF) was 0.54 per million hours worked. When compared to our industry and the industries in which we support, our TRCF is a world class performance and demonstrations that safety is embedded in our culture. Since launching the Target 365 Safety Culture Program in 2012, we have remained focussed on operational excellence which continues to support and drive MMA’s TRCF. Our world-class results confirm 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 is member of the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) Asia Pacific Region and the Global HSSE Committee. MMA is also a contributor to Safer Together WA/NT, an Australian not-for-profit, member-led organisation committed to seeking industry collaboration towards building a strong and consistent safety culture within our industry.

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 FY2020. 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.
