North Star Shipping wins international safety award for eleventh consecutive yearNews // July 3, 2012
North Star Shipping, a division of Craig Group, has scooped a prestigious international award from one of the world’s leading health and safety bodies for the eleventh year in a row.
The British Safety Council has awarded the esteemed International Safety Award with Merit to North Star Shipping following assessment by a strict independent adjudication panel.
For an organisation to win this award it must have comprehensive health and safety policies, targeted plans and a clear commitment to health and safety in all areas – from the vessels at sea to the boardroom at Head Office. It must also be committed to the promotion of a positive safety culture.
North Star demonstrated the competence of those responsible for the management of health and safety and provided clear evidence about improvements achieved in health and safety during the year.
The accolade recognises the company’s commitment to safety which has seen the majority of its vessels have over six years LTI free with nine vessels having over 10 years LTI free.
