As to the question about why Nordic Tankers specifically chose to participate in creating a forum for debating security, she explains: “Security is our top priority – our employees’ security, security of others involved in our operations, the security of our customers, security of our property and the environment. Nordic Tankers continuously work on strengthening and developing our security culture. All employees, both by land and at sea, are involved in this work. We believe that security culture is about people in the whole organization, taking a responsibility for their actions. Our security culture goes a long way out of the ordinary security procedures in a tanker shipping company, which is usually managed by SMS (Safety Management System), and deals with the softer and less measurable aspects of security, such as behavior, habit and culture. We look forward to share our experiences and exchange knowledge with others, working in the same industry.
Danish Shipping & Ship Management Conferences are held at The Train Workshop, as a part of Danish Maritime Fair, from the 6th – 8th of October, 2015.
