We are totally committed to maintaining a quality fleet and safe and efficient operations in accordance with our safety and environmental policies. The safety management and training requirements of the company are an important and integral part of this commitment.

We began implementing a safety management system on board our vessels in 1994. Working closely with DNV we were first certified under ISM requirements in 1996 and were fully certified on all types of vessels by 2001. Since 2002 we have been developing and implementing an environmental management system with DNV assistance which resulted in ISO 14001 certification in October 2003.

As part of the safety and environmental management system we place a very high priority and emphasis on training of all seafarers employed by us.
