Accreditations and Procedures
Health & Safety
As your representative in port, our Health & Safety measures receive the same meticulous attention as your own.
We are not content simply to comply with relevant legislation; we take it further. Safety awareness is a prerequisite for all our staff. All boarding personnel have undertaken approved safety on board awareness courses not just in gas, chemical and oil tankers but in dry bulk and steel traffics.
Environmental responsibility is also a major part of our ethos.
Whatever we do, we ensure our impact on the environment is minimal, recycling, wherever possible, and encouraging our staff to drive 'greener' cars. Our expertise in biodiesel is yet another example of our commitment to sustaining our planet's future.
Our practices are underpinned by a strict adherence to the ISO 9001 quality standard which forms an important part of the Casper ethos of high quality service provision.
