For more than 150 years, ABS has been promoting the security of life and property and preserving the natural environment. With a passion for making the world a safer place, while also delivering practical and innovative solutions, we stand ready to assist and advance the marine and offshore industries.
A world-class safety culture entails focus, attention and consistent actions to drive positive change. That is how I would describe the efforts of ABS employees around the globe. We are focused on our mission and passionate about being a leader in safety excellence.
Safety excellence requires us to fully embrace our practices and make them a part of our daily lives. It demands that everyone be accountable for their own health and safety excellence and to intervene when they see a potentially unsafe situation.
Through our mission and spirit, we have built a framework to empower our employees to make a positive difference in health and safety for ABS, our clients and the industries we serve.
Globally, ABS continues to strengthen our Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental (HSQE) record with increasing engagement of several leading safety behaviors, including timely reporting of potential incidents or hazards and documenting near misses. ABS also holds a leading position in safety with all major Port State Control areas while focusing on service delivery.
ABS leadership actively worked to guide employees toward safety excellence. A structure to enable safety excellence was put in place, and various processes and actions were implemented to help improve safety performance.
ABS sustains its high-quality performance level related to service delivery through training, procedures and active senior management attention to safety and Port State Control performance records.
