April 02, 2010
TOKYO - Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL, President: Akimitsu Ashida) today announced the launch of the semiannual Safety Campaign aboard all of its operated vessels and those of its group companies.
The campaign, which runs from 1 April to 30 April, will feature an exchange of ideas, advice and opinions with vessel personnel, and is targeted at achieving the MOL goal of "four zeroes":- zero serious marine accidents, zero environmental pollution caused by oil spills, zero work-related fatalities, and zero serious cargo damage. This campaign is one component in a range of activities directed at realizing the company's key objective of forging ahead to become "the world leader in maritime safety", as set out in the new mid-term management plan "GEAR UP! MOL". The campaign is also designed to seek ways to further strengthen MOL's safety management structure.
Through onboard visits by top management, executives, and shore-based employees, the campaign will check the status of safety measures aboard the MOL Group fleet vessels and promote a frank exchange of opinions between seagoing personnel and land-based staff, with the objective of heightening the overall level of safety.
Target vessels include merchant ships in the MOL Group fleet, as well as ferries and cruise ships.
