Over three dates in July, NYK hosted a safety promotion conference for shipowners and ship-management companies at the NYK head office in Tokyo and at Imabari city in Ehime prefecture.
This conference is held every year as part of the “Remember Naka-no-Se” safety campaign, which draws on the lessons learnt by the Diamond Grace oil spill in July 1997 to encourage all NYK Group employees to bear in mind the importance of safe operations.
This year, a total of 180 participants from 79 companies gathered at the conference. Under the slogan "Think, Act and Be Safe,” participants reviewed actual collisions and incidents of engine trouble to prevent any recurrence. In addition, the understanding and cooperation of all was requested to formulate the “creative solutions” called for in the group’s “More Than Shipping 2018” medium-term management plan for the achievement of safe and optimal ship operations.
The NYK Group will continue to host this conference in order to ensure the safety of the entire NYK fleet, including NYK Group affiliates, shipowners, ship-management companies, and also marine- and land-related parties.
