MOL launches safety campaign based on 'lessons learned'

MOL launches safety campaign based on 'lessons learned'

Tokyo: Mitsui O.S.K. Lines today announced the launch of a new Safety Campaign targetting MOL-owned vessels, chartered vessels and MOL Group vessels, which includes both ferries and cruise ships.
The main objective of this safety campaign is to promote the better exchange of opinions about measures that can reinforce safety management.  MOL says the campaign is based on 'lessons learned from serious marine incidents that occurred in 2006,' including the Cougar Ace incident (pictured). MOL further hopes the campaign will express the company's gratitude for crew members who have consistently worked hard and shown great dedication to safe and efficient operations.
This year's Safety Campaign, which begins today and runs through November 28, aims to thoroughly disseminate information about proper measures that can further enhance the safety of all vessel operations.
MOL officers and staff from all business sectors will visit select vessels in order to boost awareness of safe operation. They will be facilitating open discussions between seafarers and shore-staff that will help deepen mutual understanding of each others efforts to reinforce the MOL Group's safety management structure that was formulated in December 2006. In addition, they will interview crew members about specific practices to ensure safe operation. The campaign is intended to enhance operational safety by sharing information identified during the campaign, including both potential dangers and best practices, throughout all sections of MOL.  [01/10/08]
