A month-long campaign to enhance safety is held every June. (2016 marked the 28th year). We strive to raise safety awareness among land-based employees and crew members alike.
Our main activities are as follows:
As a vessel operator, we attend crew training sessions held by manning companies in South Korea, Bangladesh, the Philippines, and Myanmar to help our allocated seafarers develop a stronger awareness of safe operation.
Twice a year, MOL Chemical Tankers honors excellent vessels with certificates of commendation and cash bonuses. The top two vessels are selected based on assessments submitted by relevant departments including overseas offices (accident information and analysis reports).
Quality Safety Committee (QSC) meeting is held every month. With the target of eliminating serious incidents (marine accidents, ocean pollution, fatalities), QSC determines the causes of nonconformities that occurred during a given month and formulates measures to prevent reoccurrence in the future.
We have developed a system of horizontal communication (through company circulars such as NAVWAR, COMWAR, and so on) throughout the entire fleet, distributing information on causes of incidents related to navigation, vessel operation, loading/discharging, and so on, and communicating measures to prevent such problems.
In addition, all our operated vessels share information regarding pirate attacks and changes in navigation rules and regulations, seeking to ensure safe navigation.
MOL Chemical Tankers transports various high value-added, delicate and perishable cargo that are considered difficult to handle, in addition to animal and plant oils. We brought together our long-term experience and know-how to create our proprietary Loading Assist System [LAS] to ensure the safety of crew and vessels as a top priority, and painstakingly protect cargo quality.
Specifically, this includes:
At MOL Chemical Tankers, we have decades of experience in tank cleaning technology and procedures, and are constantly upgrading our expertise to meet customer needs. We strictly conform to the standards set by MARPOL and others for discharging cleaning water.
