Poseidon Offshore (Safety and Health) Ltd was formed in 2007 by Captain Paul Burridge (plod). Paul initially worked on his own providing Health, Safety, Environmental and ISM advice, support and services to the Geophysical, renewable, offshore and shipping industries.
The company was named after the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon, who was believed to control the safety and destiny of mariners. Health and safety of the modern day is now entrusted to the HSE management system and its effective implementation by the crew.
