When asked why Nordic Tankers have specifically been chosen to help create a forum for discussion of security she explains:
"Safety is our top priority - our employees safety, the safety of others involved in our operations, our customers' safety, the safety of our property and the environment. Nordic Tankers work continuously to strengthen and develop our safety. All employees, both on land and at sea are involved in this work. We believe that safety is about people throughout the organization, each taking responsibility for their actions," says Ann-Louise Grahed.
"Security goes beyond the normal security procedures in a tanker company, which is usually controlled by SMS (Safety Management System) and is about the softer and less measurable aspects of security, such as behaviour, habit and culture. We look forward to be sharing our experiences and exchange knowledge and insights with others working in the same industry. "
The Danish Shipping & Ship Management Conferences are held at Lokomotivværkstedet as part of the Danish Maritime Fair, from d 6 to 8 October.
