Integral to our mission.
We are responsible for providing all shore-based employees and seafarers with a working environment that is safe and healthy. Each individual is also personally responsible for working in a safe and healthy manner.
The actions of all employees, both on board and ashore, are guided by the following principles:
- Accidents and injuries are almost always preventable.
- Each individual has personal responsibility for his or her own safety, as well as for the safety of others.
- No business objective is so important that it requires the sacrifice of safety standards.
- A job is considered well done only if it is safely done.
- Safety procedures must always be followed.
A preventive, proactive approach to risks and hazards
Our philosophy towards Health & Safety is that any decision made, or any action taken, by a seafarer or shore-based professional must aim to be preventive and proactive rather than reactive. Accidents, incidents, and near misses can be eliminated and/or mitigated by carefully assessing and evaluating potential risks and hazards that may jeopardize Health & Safety. To this end, we have created formal risk assessment mechanisms that apply internal controls to each management company’s activities so as to decrease the probability of mishaps, mishandlings and errors.
