Safety Is Built Into Our Operations And Culture

With 90% of our employees working at sea, safety is of paramount importance at TORM. That is why we have made the prevention of maritime accidents and injuries a strategic priority that permeates our operations and culture.

The Five Safety I's

The Five Safety I’s encapsulate TORM’s approach to maritime safety and keep everyone in the company focused on the potential causes of accidents and injuries and how to prevent them.

The One TORM Safety Culture - Driving Resilience Program

Talking about safety is one thing. Making it a central part of a worldwide work culture is something else.

At TORM, we have developed a range of concrete measures that keep our focus on safety as individuals, teams, and leaders. Both at sea and ashore, we anchor our safety culture in:

  • Standard operating procedures based on best practices
  • Dedicated training for all, from entry-level seafarers to senior officers
  • Data-driven analyses and reporting
  • Personal performance assessments and career path development plans

We call this the One TORM Safety Culture - Driving Resilience Program.

“Safety is deeply ingrained in the TORM business culture, and it plays a critical role in everything we do. From the boardroom to the engine room to onboarding the newest recruit, the prevention of accidents and injuries is top of mind throughout the organization.”

Jesper S. Jensen Head of Technical Division

Measure what matters

The One TORM Safety Culture defines clear standards and metrics to drive continual safety improvements.

Among many other things, we analyze all near-miss incidents to understand the conditions that could lead to accidents but have not yet. To ensure transparency, we report safety data using industry standard practices such as Lost Time Accident Frequency (LTAF), which indicates serious work-related personal injuries resulting in more than one day off work per million work hours.
