Quality & Safety Management (QHSE)
We believe that with the rise of regulations and competitive pressures, the role of dedicated Quality, Health, Safety & Environment officers has increased significantly.

Highest safety standards are needed to ensure that any threats and risks to crew, ships, environment, and thereby for our customers, are kept to the minimum. Compliance with national and international rules and regulations is an essential basis for accomplishing this.
A stringent quality management system brings confidence that the consistently high quality of our services is achieved and help to identify new potential for optimization.
For the interest of our partners and customers all activities are monitored by means of an operations management system to ensure implementation of improvements with a maximum efficiency.
All company employees are constantly working to improve and further enhance our quality standards and to harness further potential in that field of activity.
