Health and safety: integral to our mission

Vridhi Maritime is responsible for providing its employees with a working environment that is safe and healthy. At the same time, each member of the company is also individually responsible for working in a safe and healthy manner.

Safety _ Quality Policy

The actions of all Vridhi Maritime employees, both on board and ashore, are guided by the following principles:

  • Accidents and injuries are almost always preventable.
  • Each individual has personal responsibility for his or her own safety, as well as for the safety of others.
  • No business objective is so important that it requires the sacrifice of safety standards.
  • A job is considered well done only if it is safely done.
  • Safety procedures must always be followed.
A preventive, proactive approach to risks and hazards

Our philosophy towards Health & Safety is that any decision made, or any action taken, by a shore-based professional or seafarer must aim to be preventive and proactive rather than reactive. Accidents, incidents, and near misses can be eliminated and/or mitigated carefully by assessing and evaluating potential risks and hazards that may jeopardize Health & Safety. To attain this, we have created a formal risk assessment mechanism that applies internal controls to the company’s activities so as to decrease the probability of mishaps, mishandling and errors.

We strongly believe that successful Health & Safety management is an integral part of the company’s mission, and is crucial for the company’s future sustainability.
