IMS has developed an internal training academy where safety training is provided. Attendance to the academy is a mandatory requirement for employment in IMS.
The core focus on the training is to foster a strong safety awareness among all employees. Issues that are touched on are normal day to day activities, risk analysis, where the dangers are, and how to avoid them.
The “Safety Manual” is a guide to avoid dangerous and hazardous situations as well as guidance on what to do should an incident occur.
IMS has further developed a “Welcome Aboard” manual. This manual is an introduction to what is to be expected when working onboard a vessel.
The training and introduction is no rocket science. Its purpose is just to put awareness in the forefront, to ensure that the safety of our employees, others around them, property and the environment is always a part of the daily routine.
