Good HSE track record is a key selection criteria imposed by all our customers in the oil and gas industry. We maintain comprehensive HSE practices across our entire fleet to ensure the safe operation of our vessels and prevention of pollution so as to provide an injury and incident free work environment. The HSE track record of vessel providers is an important criteria for our customers when awarding a charter contract. Established HSE track records can also be a significant barrier to entry for potential competitors.
We aim to continuously improve our HSE performance through our framework of procedures, emergency drills, practices and standards to prevent, identify, organise and control potential hazards in a proactive manner. This includes key safety system elements such as management and employee training, inspections, safety and incident analysis, incident investigation, emergency preparedness, protective equipment, health controls, group meetings, promotion of safety culture and environmental protection. We have also clearly outlined the key objectives and responsibilities of our employees.
To further improve our HSE performance, a concerted effort is undertaken throughout our operations emphasising personal safety, identification of safety risks and specification of critical control measures. We also conduct an annual HSE day with staff, charterers, clients and suppliers in order to foster collaboration and ensure a seamless response in case of any emergency.
As we expand our business, we seek to deliver an exceptional customer experience by consistently meeting or exceeding customers’ expectations for operational performance and that includes maintaining the highest HSE standards and eliminating workplace incidents and injuries, in line with the requirements of NOCs and IOCs. We are committed to maintaining high standards of occupational health, safety and environmental protection and security. Due to the nature of our operations, we are subject to various internal and external safety audits to ensure compliance with occupational health, safety and environmental protection laws and regulations, and to maintain effective waste prevention and reduction capabilities. We have taken a number of initiatives such as implementing systems covering formal safety management, comprehensive incident and near-miss reporting and investigation and emergency response. Further, we conduct regular safety and environmental audits and provide systematic health and safety training for our employees. We are proactive in establishing policies and operating procedures for safeguarding the environment against any hazardous materials aboard our vessels and at shore-based locations.
Our strong commitment to HSE has been recognised by our clients.

Bhd. for 1,000,000 man hours without any lost time incident.
In 2012, ICON Ship was awarded Best HSE Performance by PETRONAS Carigali. In 2013, our Omni Tigris AHTS won an award for outstanding safety performance from Maersk for two years operating without a lost workday.
In 2013, our Tanjung Puteri 2 vessel was awarded a fuel conservation award by ExxonMobil Malaysia.
