It is the Company's Policy to provide healthy and safe working conditions, promote and enhance safety as a work culture, prevent loss or human injury and avoid any adverse impact on the environment (marine or otherwise) including property.

The Company's Safety Management System has been structured to ensure compliance and conformity with IMO Resolution A741/18 and other applicable national and international regulations, relevant standards and guidelines.

The main objectives of our H.S.W.E. Policy are as follows:
  • To prevent loss of human life and personal injury.
  • To prevent damage of the ship, her cargo and environment.
  • To assess all identified risks to its ships, personnel and the environment, to establish safeguards against identified risks and to operate the ship within ALARP.
  • To continuously improve Safety Management skills of personnel ashore and aboard ships, including preparing for emergencies related to safety of human life, property and environment.
  • To ensure that seafarers' work environment on board ships promotes occupational safety and health.

In order to achieve these objectives the management has established/arranged the following:

In this respect the policy should be understood, implemented and maintained at all levels in the organization.
