Working Environment

Risk, Commitment, Value


Incidents can disrupt normal operations and have irreversible consequences on human life and the environment. A negative work culture and environment can result in high employee turnover and low engagement. This can impact our ability to retain qualified personnel. 


We work towards Zero Harm in all operations and preservation of the environment by investing in training, robust mitigation measures and emergency response systems in accordance with internationally recognised standards. We foster a company culture that is welcoming and respectful of the various backgrounds and skills that make up our workforce and supply chain.


We protect crew, employee and third-party stakeholders, ensure wellness of mind and body, and prevent damage to vessels and property.

Our Approach

Health and Safety

At BW LPG, the Health and Safety of our employees and crew are non-negotiable. Zero Harm is an organisation-wide safety campaign at BW LPG with the goal of ensuring that safety remains the top priority across all our operations. We apply our competence and experience in commercial management and operations to bring energy safely to world markets. We aim to provide the best value services in our industry through outstanding operating efficiency, but always keeping safety at the top of our agenda. 

Human and Labour Rights

We respect the rights of the people we employ and work with. We support the principles in the United Nations Universal Declaration and promote enterprises’ respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.In connection with the Norwegian Transparency Act (NTA), we ensure the public access to information regarding how the company addresses adverse impacts on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions. 

Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIB)

We value diversity in all its forms and are committed to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion. Our collective sum of individual differences, knowledge and experience is not only a part of our culture, but also allows us to better understand and meet customer needs. It also allows us to create a workplace environment where employees can perform to their fullest potential, which ultimately drives better financial performance.
