Health and Safety training
for the fishing industry
What is MarineSAFE?
MarineSAFE provides video-based training programmes and uses real fishing footage to support learning associated with risk management in the commercial fishing industry. The programmes are focused on improving health and safety outcomes and reducing injury rates.
The resources developed are accessible using all devices and simple to use. MarineSAFE will support your current induction, training, and compliance requirements under MOSS and HSWA.
The first phase
The first phase of the MarineSAFE project is intended for the inshore industry with the aim of growing and developing into all seafood sectors.
Further tailored resources, training programmes, downloadable templates and health and safety material will be developed after this initial phase and available to the wider fishing and aquaculture industry as the MarineSAFE voyage continues.
MarineSAFE provides you with refresher training and useful, practical, induction resources to help with your crew training. You and your crew are able to download completion certificates after each module and you have access to various free templates to support your MOSS and HSWA systems onboard.
MarineSAFE provides you with simple, easy to understand, online training videos that you can do anytime, anywhere, on your phone or device, that will help you understand the hazards onboard a vessel. MarineSAFE will assist you with your learning voyage in the maritime industry. For every module you complete, you get a certificate to add to your training profile.
The first 8 resources will be FREE!
MarineSAFE has been supported by ACC and the NZ Federation of Commercial Fishermen so the first 8 resources developed are FREE and available to all fishers and others keen to learn about our industry.

We're working directly with you
MarineSAFE training programmes are developed working closely with industry stakeholders to ensure training is realistic and relevant for each sector.
We are not a regulator or government department or training institute. We are a group of industry people wanting to provide industry with useful, practical, maritime training tools.
