On September 1st, NYK held its annual Dry Bulk Safety Conference at the company???s headquarters in Tokyo to review safety awareness and share updated guidelines for safe cargo operations. A total of 90 participants from 50 Japanese shipowners and ship-management companies attended.
This conference has been held every year since 2010 to promote safety by exchanging ideas about safety policy and sharing information about recent incidents with shipowners and ship-management company representatives.
This year, NYK released its recently updated "Essential-15" safe cargo operation guidelines and emphasized how the guidelines can result in the higher quality transport of dry bulk cargo.
The NYK Group will continue its efforts to maintain safe operations in cooperation with NYK affiliates, shipowners, and ship-management companies.
