Do it safely-
Or not at all
Making the sea a safe place to work has been ESVAGT’s mission from day one. Safety is part of our DNA, and today our safety commitment is as strong as ever.
As we say: Do it safely or not at all.
We build on the ability to navigate any sea safely. Whether we are responding to an emergency with our Fast Rescue Boats or are safely transferring people between our Service Operation Vessels and offshore wind farm installations, the combination of skills, competencies, mind-set and equipment sets ESVAGT apart as the preferred safety partner.
Safety always comes first. ESVAGT was born from respect and passion for the sea; safety is imbedded in ESVAGT’s DNA and after 40 years, our safety commitment is as strong as ever.
The ESVAGT safety culture
We believe that a safe and secure working environment is a prerequisite for doing business at sea. Throughout the company we have built a culture in which everyone takes responsibility and pride, one example being the Stop the Job Authority. All employees and customers on board have the authority to stop work that is considered unsafe. And it is expected that everyone adheres to their duty. Not because they are told to do so – but because it is the right thing to do.
Rather proactive than reactive
Proactive risk management is the cornerstone of the safety culture at ESVAGT. The purpose is to ensure that any activity, operation or design undertaken by ESVAGT is carried out with due consideration for health and safety. If an incident can be prevented through considerations, it is a far better solution than handling the resulting consequences. We employ various safety tools to control risks in our operations, including a Safety Management System, Risk Assessment, Toolbox Talks, Safety Meetings, Monitoring Safety Performance and Stop the Job Authority.
