Safety has always been a top priority for OSM Maritime Group; safety is not only the right thing to do; it delivers tangible benefits.
Among other leading commercial organizations, OSM understands that at its best, safety is a culture that permeates the whole organization. Moreover, experience dictates a direct correlation between safety and operational performance. Safety standards mitigate risk, thereby safeguarding operational performance. OSM is committed to continuously reducing the number of incurred incidents. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and other industry benchmarks note lost-time incident (LTI) rates ranging from one to ten per year. This means that for every 100 employees working 40 hrs/week for 50 weeks/year, between one and ten injuries, illnesses or fatalities occurs (LTI).
For OSM, rising above these statistics is an essential component of their commitment to safety. A number of OSM’s fleet are strong representatives of this commitment to Safety demonstrating robust and effective operations at sea.
Commenting on OSM’s track record of safety success is Head of OSM Crew Management, Tommy Olosfen:
"What I’m the most proud of in regard to OSM’s track record is that the our staff have taken the initiative to focus on safety without any commercial pressure to so, they focus on it because it is the right thing to do! We want our colleagues at sea to come home safe and we are hoping to create a platform to drive improvements in that area."
Ultimately, safety is a collective responsibility that demands individual accountability, and it is through attention to detail, knowing ones ship and equipment, and conscientious support of the mariner that safety is reflected in better operations and management.
Join us in congratulating the following vessels on reaching their own LTI milestones and celebrate safety.
