Lloyd’s Register: Marine Environmental Stewardship Clearly all need to be environmentally sensitive and proactive. Win–Win scenario: More efficient ships not only save operating costs but also improve the environment. Ship’s Energy Efficiency studies make sense. Much talk about Eco Ship: Fact or Fiction??
Lloyd’s Register: Marine Safety Culture What is the culture of an organization?: A mix of shared values, attitudes and patterns of behavior. A safety culture involves all levels of a company – when in place, everyone wins. Obvious improvements in safety reduce accidents but eventually you reach a plateau. Further improvement involves people who have a direct effect on errors or violations. The key is: do employees actually do what they say? Maximize safety culture: Need visible commitment by management Workforce takes ownership Trust at all levels Good communication Competent work force
Lloyd’s Register Marine Safety is key – one incident can have a significant impact that could put a damper on this environmentally and economic fuel. Public Perception: Perception is “reality” (DO NOT UNDER ESTIMATE). Perception differs by location. Examples: LA Boston EDUCATE EDUCATE HOT SAFETY TOPIC: LNG as Fuel
