Safety Culture Charter
The UK Chamber of Shipping, with the support of their members, has developed a ‘Safety Culture Charter’ to promote and adopt a positive Safety Culture within their member organisations, leading from the top down, with the aim to reduce the number of accidents and incidents at sea.
The Safety Culture Charter is meant to be used to supplement and complement the work already being done by organisations in terms of their safety objectives and safety management systems (SMS) without creating additional burden on current resources.
The Charter looks at making safety a top priority, driving a Just Culture and continued collaboration with the UK Chamber of Shipping and other member companies. Through ‘Commitment Actions’, companies will be able to review their progress and share experiences with other adopters of the Charter to improve their safety culture.
If you would like more information on the Safety Culture Charter, or find out how to adopt the charter, please contact Fena Boyle FBoyle@ukchamberofshipping.com
