TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President & CEO: Junichiro Ikeda) today announced that its annual safety campaign will begin on July 15, targeting all MOL Group-operated and owned vessels.

Safety is the topmost priority in all MOL business activities. The company views the safe operation as a key social obligation and is committed to forging ahead to become the world leader in safe operation. 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.

Proposals and ideas gained through this campaign will be shared throughout the MOL Group, including MOL Group-operated and owned vessels, to further enhance the group’s safety culture.

[Campaign Details]

  • Campaign period: Monday, July 15, 2019, to Tuesday, March 31, 2020
  • Main theme:

STOP and THINK MORE ~One Step Ahead~

In order to prevent accidents, we have been promoting the concept of “STOP and THINK MORE” as a habit of our seafarers since 2017. In this year, we promote actual practice of “STOP and THINK MORE” 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.
