Marine SafetyWorks is pleased to offer the following services:


Training is an integral part of Marine SafetyWorks and supports the overall safety preparation of yachts and crew, particularly for offshore racing and cruising. The key course focus is the World Sailing Safety and Sea Survival course which provides an overriding approach to safety. Marine SafetyWorks utilises the facilities of the Qantas Jet Base training pool for wet drills which provides one of the most realistic, yet controlled training environments. Marine SafetyWorks also provides training in Workplace Approved Australian Red Cross First Aid with the focus on marine environmental challenges and adaptations, and training for Marine Radio Certificates of Proficiency in both VHF (Short Range) and HF (Long Range). Boat specific training is also offered in the use of the safety equipment supplied by Marine SafetyWorks, and in the development and practice of Standard Operating and Emergency Procedures onboard.

Genevieve White, Principal

Genevieve developed Marine SafetyWorks in 2004 as a result of extensive experience in marine safety over 35 years of yachting in the competitive, cruising, training and development arenas. She has logged over 100,000 offshore miles from deliveries and offshore racing which includes the 2001-2002 Volvo Ocean Race as navigator for the Nautor Challenge entry Amer Sports Too, and other international races including the Newport to Bermuda, Sydney to Hobart, Fastnet, and Transpac. Her experiences in the Southern Ocean and in those many offshore miles have highlighted the absolute necessity for a professional approach to marine safety issues.

Genevieve was very closely involved in the development of the Australian Yachting Federation (now Australian Sailing) Safety and Sea Survival course which was adopted by the International Sailing Federation (now World Sailing) and is now presented worldwide as the World Sailing Safety and Sea Survival Course. It is an integral part of offshore racing in Australia. Genevieve is also qualified to teach and invigilate Marine Radio for the Office of Maritime Communications, First Aid for the Australian Red Cross, and Safety and Sea Survival for Australian Sailing.

Marine SafetyWorks aims to provide assistance to all yacht owners, both in sail and power, to improve safety awareness, and to ensure safety compliance with relevant safety regulations at all times. It is a ‘one stop shop’ for all safety management needs for recreational and small commercial yacht owners and businesses.
