The new regulations of USCG Subchapter M have pushed the tug and towboat industry to increase compliance in the most important area that our industry has been lacking in, SAFETY! The tug and towboat industry has historically been behind in requiring safety standards for vessels and personnel.
At IntraTug, we are proud to say that we are USCG Subchapter M Compliant – and we’re deeply committed to providing the safest, most rigid safety standards in the industry. We have spent the last 3 years preparing for the new Sub M rules process, and our diligent focus on safety and our existing safety culture has made the transition smooth and painless.
In addition to our ongoing commitment and support of Sub M compliance for IntraTug, we’re also committed to ensuring that all our personnel and mariners have the opportunity to achieve their Sub M compliance as well. It’s just one more reason that IntraTug is a great place to work for people who are looking for a rewarding career in the marine industry.
Our on-board training system provided by Helm, in conjunction with our partner Tug and Barge Solutions, has been integral in the implementation of our company specific Towing Safety Management System (TSMS). Our efforts in compliance won’t ever stop as our TSMS is a living and breathing member of our IntraTug family and will continue to directly benefit our personnel and vessels.
Whether you need small tendering tugs or pushboats in shallow water operations, or if you simply need to move products and supplies at an economical rate on the Intracoastal, across the Gulf, or around the horn – IntraTug is READY to serve you with READY ASSETS and the industry’s most talented and reliable personnel!
