Japanese shipping company MOL announced that its annual safety campaign will begin on 15 July, targeting all MOL Group-operated and owned vessels. This is aligned with the company's commitment to become world leader in safe operations.
As part of these efforts, the president, executives, and other personnel will actively conduct an extensive series of visits to MOL Group-operated and owned vessels.
During their visits, they will meet with seafarers who are responsible for safe operation on the front line, and conduct detailed discussions with them to further reinforce the safety culture among all MOL seafarers and shore staff.
Then MOL plans to share proposals and ideas gained through this campaign shared throughout the company, including MOL Group-operated and owned vessels, to further enhance the group's safety culture.
The campaign is to begin on Monday, 15 July and last until Tuesday, 31 March 2020, under the theme 'STOP and THINK MORE -One Step Ahead'
MOL has been promoting the concept of "STOP and THINK MORE" as a habit of seafarers since 2017, but, this year, it promotes actual practice for them.
"That means to actually "STOP" when we feel anxious or think something is wrong, imagine what are the hazards of the working process, and then identify what is the correct and safe path forward. Through the discussions, the campaign is intended to help develop a solid, united safety culture among all MOL Group executives and employees at sea and on land; that is, a corporate culture based on a common set of values that places safe operation as the highest priority,"
