Safe Operation Management Structure
The MOL Operational Safety Committee, chaired by the president, deliberates basic policies, countermeasures, and other items aimed at ensuring the secure and completely safe operation of MOL- and MOL Group-operated vessels, and makes decisions on safety-related measures.
Objective Safe Operation Indices
MOL sets the following numerical goals including "Four Zeroes," as objective indices to measure safety.
- "Four Zeroes" (zero serious marine incidents, zero oil pollution, zero fatal accidents, and zero serious cargo damage) as the MOL Group
- Less than 0.70 (from FY2015) LTIF (Lost Time Injury Frequency)(*1)
- Less than 24.00 hours of downtime per ship per year(*2)
- Less than 1.00 incidents per ship per year that require stopping the ship.(*3)
(Lost Time Injury Frequency)
- Average Vessel Stoppage Time(*2), and Percentage of Incidents Resulting in Stoppage(*3)
(*1) Conventionally, occupational injuries and illnesses that forced seafarers to disembark vessels were counted. But starting in FY2015, the total includes cases in which seafarers did not have to disembark, but were unable to return to work, including light duty.
