Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited, like her sister companies, is dedicated to promoting a culture in which employees feel responsible for the environment, their own safety and the safety of the people around them.
Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited?utilizes behavior-based safety schemes, safety incentive programs and an emphasis on face-to-face interaction among marine operators, safety managers and line managers to strengthen its safety culture.

A strong safety culture exists within Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited that is exercised and encouraged by all levels of the organization. Management and staff are fully committed to the aim of Zero Accidents. Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited strives to continually provide the finest training for our employees on land and on our vessels. This culture is based upon the following Four Pillars that support all that we do:
- Safety Management System (SMS): The SMS is certified and audited against the ISM code by Flag-States and Classification Societies.
- Job Safety Analysis (JSA): Also referred to as Pre-Job Planning, JSAs assure that all work is risk assessed before being carried out.
- Prevent Accidents Use Safety marine (PAUSE): This behavior-based safety program was developed to identify unsafe working conditions by using observations and discussions with those involved in the work. The conclusions reached result in development of preventive actions.
- Stop Work Authority (SWA): Each and every employee has the authority and responsibility to stop work to sustain the safest working environment possible.
The Safety Management System or SMS was created by Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited?based on the principles of the International Safety Management Code, as a means of protecting people, property, and the environment
The SMS provides Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited’s mariners with a guide of best practices and aids crews with regulatory compliance, emergency preparedness, maintenance programs and continued improvement of work practices. The SMS is subject to annual auditing from trained internal auditors, the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), and the review of the mariners using the system. This provides a means of continuous review and improvement of the system. Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited’s SMS has received ISM certification from ABS and operates vessels throughout the world under its guidance.
Every mariner working on Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited’s vessels participates in weekly on board training pulled directly from the SMS. This weekly training ensures that crew members become fully conversant with the SMS and provides an additional layer of review to verify compliance with the code
The management of Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited?believes that the SMS is an important proactive tool, which has been adopted by all Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited’s vessels worldwide. Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited’s management stands behind the belief that every incident can be prevented, and the SMS is an invaluable tool in our Journey to Zero.
At Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited, safety is our top priority. We strive to be pacesetters in our industry and place the safety of every employee first and foremost. Our employees are well-versed in the latest regulations and are provided the best tools to do their respective jobs safely and efficiently. One such tool is the Job Safety Analysis (JSA).
The Job Safety Analysis (JSA) encourages each and every crewmember to pre-plan for any task that is required of them. The JSA is a simple tool that can be applied to the most complex of tasks. The JSA is a form that poses a series of questions and answers relevant to any job our crewmembers may incur onboard our vessels. The JSA ensures that all jobs can be pre-planned to ensure they are then carried out by the safest possible means. Many times, our employees are asked to participate in a JSA by the companies that contract our vessels. Working hand in hand with our contracting companies provides a safer working experience for all. The JSA is one crucial element of Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited’s Four Pillars to Safety.
While Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited?embraces safety as its top priority, we recognize that conditions on the job may suddenly change, creating an unsafe work. To combat these unpredictable instances, Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited?has implemented the Stop Work Authority (SWA) program as yet another crucial element in its Four Pillars of Safety program.
The Stop Work Authority (SWA) program allows any and all employees that witness an unsafe act or feel that conditions do not warrant safe operations to immediately stop the job without question. Many of our clients use similar programs in their day-to-day business as a part of their respective safety cultures. Deepoffshore Shipping Company Limited?recognizes the benefits of utilizing SWA and embraces its principles, reaping the results with safer operations and bringing us closer to our GOAL ZERO.
