MOL sets the following numerical goals including "Four Zeroes," as objective indices to measure safety.
Incident Aboard MOL Ferry Sunflower Daisetsu
In FY2015, a serious marine incident and workplace fatality occurred on an MOL Group-operated vessel, so the group did not achieve "Four Zeroes."
[Outline of Incident]
On July 31, 2015, an accidental fire broke out on the vehicle deck of the ferry Sunflower Daisetsu operated by MOL Ferry Co., Ltd., resulting in the death of a crewmember who was fighting the fire.
[Prevention of Reoccurrence]
To prevent the reoccurrence of such an incident, MOL Ferry installed additional firefighting equipment and facilities and provided a more practical firefighting plan. Upon the approval of the proper authorities, the vessel returned to service on February 3, 2016. It continues to conduct periodic firefighting training and is sharing its firefighting plan and safety measures with other group companies.
