MJ Marine Safety is a family-run business that was started in 2006 at the developing Yacht Haven Quay providing dry-berthing and a boat-stowage facility here in Plymouth.
Martin''s career in Safety Equipment started off in the Royal Air Force in 1983 as a Safety Equipment Fitter. On being attached to the Parachute Regiment at Aldershot Martin served in several regions of the world servicing safety equipment.
Martin''s next posting was at the School of Combat, Survival and Rescue and Trials here at Plymouth at what was Royal Air Force Mountbatten, where he then became a Survival Instructor and and trialled various new and weird safety equipment.
Martin stayed with the School of Combat Survival and Rescue when Royal Air Force Mountbatten was closed down and was posted to RAF St Mawgan. It was there that he was awarded and mentioned in the Queen''s Birthday honours list for his work on safety equipment for the Bosnia and Gulf War conflicts.
Since leaving the Royal Air Force, Martin has become a Royal Yachting Association Sea Survival Instructor and also a STCW and Seafishies Sea Survival Instructor. He has also set up three approved MCA Liferaft servicing stations for previous companies and is The Plymouth Lifeboat Sea Safety Officer for the RNLI Sea Check Team in Plymouth. We are able to give talks and demostrations for your club or Scout group ect. Also Martin has now become a Retained Fire Fighter at his local Community Fire Station at Plymstock with the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service and part of his duties is being the Coxwain of the Fire Boat Viliges, So if you see the fire boat on the water give it a wave, it could be Martin at the Helm !
Along side this Martin has now been trainined up with Her Majesty''s Coast Guard Search and Rescue and since joining the Mountbatten (Plymouth) Team and has passed his Cliff Rescue technician course to become a Coast Guard Rescue Officer for the Plymouth Team.
It was because of the demise of his previous employer that prompted him to start MJ Marine Safety.
