NYK Completes Winter Safety Campaign
February 10, 2011
The NYK Group has completed its winter safety campaign, which was titled “Sail on Safety” and ran from December 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011. NYK carries out the campaign every year as part of its proactive measures to prevent accidents that are more likely to occur due to the turbulent seas which are more common during the winter months.
During this campaign, 345 NYK Group members, including NYK executives, visited 207 vessels to deepen communication between onboard crew and onshore staff by sharing current information about the vessel and exchanging opinions about safe ship operations. During the visit, crew members and ship operators discussed case studies that included how to avoid unsafe conditions that can lead to an accident. The visits also promote mutual understanding between onboard crew and onshore staff, and bring people together in a united effort to increase safety awareness.
