HSSEQ

United Heavy Lift is committed to apply the highest level of health, safety, security, environmental, and quality standards to all transportation projects we are entrusted with. We encourage everyone to take part in this safety culture, which is based on clear and visible leadership.

 

HSSE / QUALITY MANAGEMENT

We manage and control our projects through our Health, Safety, Security, Environmental, and Quality Management System, which is used in all offices and on all vessels. We think before we act. Our activities are planned, organized, and performed in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner from the management top down to the employees and the crew onboard our vessels. Safety starts with you and me.

Our health, safety, security, environmental, and quality policies are supported by in-house, experienced, qualified specialists who ensure that the movement of our clients’ goods are managed without damage to the environment, without hazard to personnel, and without risk to the cargo. Each voyage method work statement includes its own detailed section on HSSEQ including a voyage specific risk analysis.
