Maritime Safety Queensland is focusing on responsibility for safety on the vessel skipper. You’re The Skipper, You’re Responsible is an initiative aimed at encouraging recreational operators to take responsibility for their actions on the water and for skippers to be aware they are ultimately responsible.
If the skipper takes the lead, then crew and passengers will follow. You’re The Skipper, You’re Responsible will be at the forefront of all Maritime Safety Queensland educational material and campaigns reminding skippers of their responsibilities. To find out more, visit https://www.msq.qld.gov.au/.
