Occupational Health, Safety and Environment Policy

Canship Ugland Ltd has established and maintains documented OHSE&E objectives to reflect the companies short and long term aspirations. These objectives provide direction for setting targets and seeking opportunities; the objectives are reviewed each year in the annual management review.

As a ship manager Canship Ugland Ltd. is engaged in the technical management and crewing of merchant vessels on a global basis. Although we do not control the trading patterns of our vessels we are involved in the converting of petroleum product in to energy for the transport, safety and quality control of consumer goods and personnel in our charge.

Although the larger factors of our energy efficiency are out of our control, we are able to work closely with charters and owners of the vessels to improve wherever possible. The direct consumption of fuel onboard the vessel can be managed within the parameters set out in the voyage orders in order to achieve continuous improvement.

Energy efficiency will be tracked via a series of energy efficiency indicators on a monthly basis. Annual reviews of these indicators will take place in order to document performance and plan initiatives for the upcoming year. Canship will take every opportunity within the life cycle of our consumables, to ensure that the environmental impact is as small as possible.

  1. Compliance with the law and continuous improvement in the fields of health, safety and environmental, and energy efficiency performance.
