Marine civils safety course wins royal award
SeaRegs Training were delighted when a course they designed, wrote and taught won the Princess Royal Award for a partner organisation, Thames Skills Academy (TSA) in London.
The Riverside Safety Course was designed with valuable input from Tideway and London City Airport to aid safety along the banks of docks, water edges for construction operatives and port workers.
Held at their satellite classroom and facilities in London, SeaRegs ensured that over a thousand people now understand the potential dangers of working near the water. The course offers practical training to help people stay safe should they (or their colleagues) fall into the water. The one-day course includes practical training in a pool, dockside and includes lifejacket checks. It focuses on issues of falling and rescue from construction sites, dock and riverside edges, barges or working in and around waterways, rather than conventional safety training for vessels.
The awards culminated in a prestigious event on the Thames where the Princess Royal met members of the TSA, Tideway and previous course participants and was given a demonstration of the training by Simon Jinks, Director of SeaRegs Training and their apprentices.
SeaRegs offer a range of courses around the country for workers operating in maritime environments and harbours such as:Safe access to vessels – designed for engineers and workers who need to get access to vessels in a harbour or at sea.
