Stop Work Authority (SWA)

While SEACOR Marine embraces safety as its top priority, we recognize that conditions on the job may suddenly change, creating an unsafe work. To combat these unpredictable instances, SEACOR Marine has implemented the Stop Work Authority (SWA) program as yet another crucial element in its Four Pillars of Safety program.

The Stop Work Authority (SWA) program allows any and all employees that witness an unsafe act or feel that conditions do not warrant safe operations to immediately stop the job without question. Many of our clients use similar programs in their day-to-day business as a part of their respective safety cultures. SEACOR Marine recognizes the benefits of utilizing SWA and embraces its principles, reaping the results with safer operations and bringing us closer to our GOAL ZERO.
