There are two main types of SeSAFE modules, generic and fishery-specific. Generic modules are suitable for an individual working anywhere in the fishing and aquaculture industry. Fishery-specific modules have been developed in response to identified hazards and risk in a specific fishery. Additional modules can be developed upon request.

Module selection is a decision that is made by the boat owner or skipper.

Current SeSAFE modules include:

Introductory modules
