NYK Unveils Large Panels within Head Office to Encourage Safety Awareness

July 2, 2018

NYK has unveiled several large panels in a common area on the 15th floor of the company’s headquarters to keep employees mindful of safety awareness. The panels were created for the company’s annual Remember Naka-no-se safety campaign, which builds on the lessons learnt from the VLCC Diamond Grace oil spill at Naka-no-se shoal in Tokyo Bay on July 2, 1997. Twenty-one years has passed since the accident, so the panels are intended to help the next generation of employees remain continually attentive to the need for safety.

- About the Campaign
The Remember Naka-no-Se safety campaign is conducted for two months from July 1 every year, and draws on the lessons learnt by the crude oil tanker Diamond Grace oil spill to encourage all NYK Group members to bear in mind the importance of safe operations. During the campaign, NYK board members, employees, and related partners visit vessels to share safety-related material with officers and crews and deepen mutual understanding of safe operation.

- Panels
Panels show images of historical moments of the company, in addition to details about the Diamond Grace oil spill. The panels also make an effort to instill a spirit of safety in young employees — the future of the company — by emphasizing NYK’s contributions to the development of modern Japan over the past 130-plus years and encouraging deep consideration of the value of safety and the avoidance of serious accidents.

The greatest mission of the NYK Group is to deliver our customers’ goods safety and securely. NYK continues to work steadily to ensure safe operation on land and at sea.
