Safety Discipline Officers (SDO)
The occupational safety risk of marine work is much higher than that on shore due to sever climate and inconvenient medical conditions on board. We established the Safety Discipline Officer Team (SDO) in April last year (2016) in order to reduce maritime incidents. The team members visit the ships regularly. By discovering and improving the deficiencies, it creates a culture of safety within the fleet. All ships have to improve the deficiency items within one month. For those items that couldn't be improved on ship, it should be fixed during ship repair. The time before the next ship repair should not be more than 36 months.
