ASKET CSO/ QHSE Feedback Form

We look forward to the opportunity of supporting you again soon.

Dear Captain,

I hope you are well, and I am pleased to see you and your crew transited the HRA safely.

ASKET were delighted to be able to broker this transit for you, as part of the ongoing independent monitoring of the PMSC's on our Approved Provider list we ask the CSO and the Master to give us feedback on the ASKET service and the professional conduct of the PMSC that supported you.

I wonder if you would take some time to complete the ASKET - Masters Transit Feedback Report which will only take around 2 minutes of your time and is part of our continuous auditing process, improving the service we provide to you.

Please open the survey here if you have internet access and if not I have also attached a word version, please feel free to highlight you responses in which ever way you find easiest and return to me.

Are you signed up to our Free Monday Briefing and Security Alerts or use our Maritime Security App, if not please check our website or ask your CSO for more details.

We look forward to supporting you again,

Calm seas,
