The health and safety of our people, our ships and their cargoes together with the protection of the natural environment in which we operate remains our top priority, and this is evident in the way it is prioritised within the Group. We believe it is necessary for a strong health and safety culture to prevail both at sea and ashore. We strive to continually minimise health and safety risks at the workplace. This is realised through operational best practices, monitoring and tracking performance as well as implementation of value-adding initiatives, including our b-HSSE Programme under the MISC Sustainability Strategy.
In complementing the robust and strategic management of health and safety in line with our commitment to support the well-being of our workforce, this strategy was developed to specifically focus on the aspects of health and safety. The Health & Safety Strategy will contribute towards a more structured, cohesive and robust approach in the management of health and safety aspects. We will be focusing on the management of health risks through a more structured and strategic approach, which includes conducting health risk assessments and the effective management of identified issues.
