Putting Family First: Interpreting Zero Harm
Zero Harm has been BW LPG’s vision for many years, and the goal of ensuring that safety of all employees remains at the forefront of all our shipping operations continues to remain a priority. A dedicated team within BW LPG implements regular initiatives to enforce a strong safety culture in a growing family of seafarers and shore based staff, so that we deliver great solutions to our customers with Zero Harm. Recognising that it is a journey, many initiatives have been implemented in recent years to support our ambition.
Beyond “Zero Harm” as a corporate vision, what does it mean for employees? As individuals and as teams, we commit to taking personal responsibility for safety, communicate safety concerns, and actively share best practices and learn from near-miss incidents. It was with deep sadness that we lost a seafarer overboard on a BW vessel in December 2018. To drive home the importance of Zero Harm for BW as a company and for each of us as individuals, BW organised a Zero Harm Art Competition. This competition was open to children and siblings of employees, aged 15 years and below.
