Safety is a constant topic in production and operation, serving as the cornerstone upon which all other endeavors rest. It is vital to the development of the Company, ship safety and the well-being of both families and individuals. We always prioritize safety and focus on preventing loss. In order to ensure high-quality transportation of energy, we continually revamp our safety management procedures, raise awareness of safety among crew members, and elevate their ability of threat response.
l Improving the safety management system, implementing safety responsibilities, and passing internal and external safety audits with high quality.
l Identifying risks, compiling risk lists and taking tiered control measures
l Continuously improving the emergency management system, holding regular emergency training and drills, and developing critical risk emergency response capabilities.
l Cultivating a corporate culture that places safety at the forefront, and enhancing employees' recognition of and dedication to the safety culture.
Safety Management System
We strictly comply with international mandatory conventions, recommended rules and guidelines, as well as domestic and foreign laws and regulations, including the Work Safety Law of the People's Republic of China and Management Code of the People's Republic of China for the Safe Operation of Ships and for Pollution Prevention. Safety management is an ongoing and comprehensive work of ship operation and transportation, with system documents providing the cornerstone and basis of ship safety management. In line with our safety policy "people‐oriented, safety first, prevention‐oriented, and comprehensive management", we consistently improve our safety management system by devising a range of system documents, including the Safety Management Manual, Work Safety Standardization Manual, and Safety Management Document, all of which are diligently executed.
We have established Safety Management Committee ("Safety Committee") tasked with formulating policies, objectives and measures, and organizing regular safety inspections and assessments. On every ship, a ship safety committee has been established to implement safety responsibilities, with the captain serving as the primary person responsible for ship safety management. Monthly ship safety committee meeting is held to analyze, deliberate and summarize the implementation of safety measures.
Prevent and Control Safety Risks
The waterborne energy transportation sector poses high safety hazards, including the possibility of collisions, groundings, fires, explosions, and other hazards that could lead to personal injury and environmental pollution. Nonetheless, we believe that all such incidents can be avoided.
Improve Emergency Response
The marine environment is frequently challenging and unpredictable, especially during navigation. In the event of an emergency, the swift and effective emergency response of onboard crew members can avert disastrous outcomes, limit casualties and minimize loss. Therefore the importance of advancing emergency management cannot be overstated.
We have implemented a comprehensive emergency management system, and established the General Principles of Emergency Response and Risk Analysis. In addition, an emergency management leading group headed by the general manager of the Company is established. Special Emergency Response Plans for addressing emergencies both at sea and on shore have also been in place to ensure a clear emergency response process.
Build a Culture of Safety
We strive to foster a corporate culture that prioritizes safety as its core value, promoting awareness and understanding among our employees through effective communications and guidance. Our goal is to establish a robust safety culture that serves as a sustainable driving force for maritime safety measures, utilizing its transformative power to practically address safety challenges.
Safeguard Cyber Security
As maritime ships and ports become increasingly digitized, cyber security management within the maritime energy transportation industry cannot be overlooked. To this end, we have developed and enhanced our cyber security management system in line with the features of shore-based and shipboard operations.
