HEALTH AND HYGIENE POLICY

The company holds health and hygiene as a high priority in its operations. At the same time, its utmost concern is always to ensure that all shore staff and seagoing personnel execute their work under safe and hygienic conditions. To ensure high standards of health and personal hygiene, the Company:

  • Complies with all applicable legislation and regulations, observes relevant guidelines, and applies relevant standards.

  • Seeks to identify and evaluate health and hygiene risks related to its operations that potentially affect employees, contractors, or the public and establishes appropriate safeguards.

  • Communicates knowledge about health and hygiene risks to individuals in potential risk or organizations and the scientific community.

  • Determines at the time of employment and thereafter, as appropriate, the medical fitness of employees to perform their work without undue risk to themselves or others.

  • Implements programs and appropriate protective measures to control such risks, including appropriate monitoring of employees in potential risk.

  • Provides or arranges, as appropriate, for medical services necessary for the treatment of employee occupational illnesses or injuries and the handling of medical emergencies.

  • Undertakes appropriate reviews and evaluations of its operations to measure progress and to foster compliance with this Policy.

The company’s goal is to achieve the highest standards of health and personal hygiene through continuous improvement onboard its vessels, as well as its operations inland.

Information about employees is confidential and should not be revealed to non-medical personnel except at the request of the employee concerned, or when required by law, when dictated by overriding public health considerations, or when necessitated by the Company’s Drug and Alcohol Policy.
