13.14.5 The SMS should also incorporate an effective feedback procedure such that the MASS’s personnel are able to communicate effectively in the execution of their duties related to the SMS.


13.14.6 Prior to the first occasion of working on the MASS, each employee should receive appropriate familiarisation training and proper instruction in onshore and on board procedures. This should include, but is not necessarily limited to:


n Control of areas around a MASS, on the support vessel whether docked alongside or rafted, or whilst at sea; n Manoeuvring in all modes at sea; n Operations in restricted and restricted/busy navigational areas; n Launching and recovery operations; n Evacuation from all areas of the MASS; n Use and handling of emergency equipment/systems.


13.14.7 This training should be recorded in the MASS Operators Training Record Book and signed off as completed by the appropriate authority or responsible person.


13.15 Maintenance of the MASS and Equipment


13.15.1 A Maintenance Management System (MMS) is another important integral part of the MASS safety management regime.


13.15.2 Procedures need to be established to ensure that the MASS is maintained to conform with the provisions of the relevant rules and regulations and with any additional requirements which may be established by the Operator.


13.15.3 To ensure conformity to these requirements the Operator should ensure that:


n Inspections are held at appropriate intervals; n Any non-conformity is reported, with its possible cause, if known; n Appropriate corrective action is taken; and n Records of these activities are maintained.


13.15.4 The equipment should be checked and tested in accordance with defined schedules produced by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and operator procedures when in use. This is in addition to the tests referred to in the procedures to ensure safe operation of MASS in compliance with the Regulations and Rules of the ISM Code.


13.15.5 There should be procedures for a more detailed inspection and maintenance programme of the MASS and equipment, which may be conducted by an outside authority/classification society.


13.15.6 The frequency of the inspections should be determined by the Operator in conjunction with the OEM Schedule and Classification Society/Professional Bodies requirements, but every event should be planned and recorded.


13.15.7 A checklist could be employed as an aide-memoire for the inspection of equipment.


13.15.8 The Operator should identify equipment and technical systems, which, if subject to sudden operational failure, may result in hazardous situations. The SMS should provide for specific measures aimed at promoting the reliability of such equipment or systems. These measures should include the regular testing of stand-by/reversionary arrangements and equipment or technical systems that are not in continuous use.
