Quality, Health, Safety and Environment (QHSE)

From the outset of its launch as a national shipping line, Oman Shipping Company has sought to achieve the highest standards of Quality, Health, Safety and the Environment (QHSE) by incorporating the principles of sustainable development across its business activities. QHSE safeguards are embedded in the company’s business processes. They are also made obligatory for OSC’s stakeholders, including its crew, shore staff, contracted personnel, and others who may be associated with the company’s operations in any way.

Given this robust adherence to internationally benchmarked QHSE standards, it’s no surprise then that OSC continues to enjoy an unblemished track record with regard to Health, Safety and the Environment. QHSE indicators for 2016 point to zero instances of workplace fatalities, injuries, pollution incidents, and other lapses – testimony of OSC’s unstinting commitment to industry benchmarks.

In line with this commitment, OSC was recently certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). The company also performed exceptionally well in the Tanker Management Self-Assessment Audit (TMSA), among other best practices prescribed for the shipping industry.
