TOKYO - Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) today announced the launch of a six-week safety campaign targeting all MOL-operated vessels, starting on April 15. President Muto, executives, and other personnel will visit vessels to exchange information and opinions with on-board employees. The campaign is intended to achieve the goal of "Four Zeroes" - Never allow (1) serious marine accidents, (2) oil pollution, (3) fatal accidents, or (4) serious cargo damage - set out in the midterm management plan "GEAR UP! MOL," which began in April 2010. Proposals and ideas gained through discussions with seafarers will be shared throughout the MOL Group and with other MOL- and MOL Group-operated vessels, with the aim of further enhancing the safe operation structure.
