Holistic safety approach – Towards Achieving Zero accidents onboard: KLSM Group Safety is of paramount importance that cannot be compromised for any shipping company.

They budget for several safety improvements and make safety a part of their operational plan thus engendering the trust of their employees. By involving employees in safety decisions – through reporting, committees, walk-through and meetings - this shows that their opinions matters to the companies. And by following through on their inputs and improving safety at company proves quiet tangibly that they care about their well-being. Similarly, employees respond by working harder, showing more pride in their jobs and remaining loyal.

Appreciating the contribution of the Indian seafarers towards running the ships safely, MR. Ogawara said, “We are successfully achieved reduction in accident rates, which are amongst the best compared to even the industry average. This was shown by facts and figures in a presentation.
