Our Safety Culture

Incidents at sea and on shore can have serious consequences for clients, crew and the environment.

BSM’s Safety Culture is driven by understanding human factors and providing concise and visual manuals drawing from aviation’s best practices. We subscribe to behavioural based safety through targeted training and positive reinforcement of safe behaviour and fostering an enhanced just culture to support safety culture. In addition, we provide our people with easy access to information and reporting opportunities via mobile applications and tablets onboard vessels.

We have a company culture, systems and policies in place to address key ship management issues – occupational health, safety and environment, cybersecurity, sanctions compliance, environmental protection and ethical operations. This ensures our clients' assets, operations and interests are protected at sea and on shore.

Our Safety Standards

We work on constantly improving our safety standards. Our just culture and transparency as a company is the basis for living a safety culture. We have experience with oil major vetting and approvals, working in challenging sectors such as LNG and offshore, as well as proven safety records.
