As SANMAR, our basic principle is to eliminate possible risks at their sources, if that is not possible, reduce them to minimum tolerable levels. And during our processes, we aim to eliminate or minimize negative impacts on environment.

Safety is our first priority at all times.

Our target is ZERO damage to employees and equipment.

Sanmar has considerable technological prevention measures to ensure safety and minimize environmental impact in its shipyards:

  • The shipyard electrical distribution system is supplied by isolated copper busbars.
  • A regenerative frequency inverter is integrated to the system used in launching vessels, giving energy savings during braking.
  • 7-24 security system supported by CCTV full monitoring system.
  • Sanmar has developed a high safety distribution in the shipyard with a ring type (central) piping system where all gasses (LNG, O2, CO2) , pressurized air, fire and process water are delivered with global color coded pipes and safety quick couplings, and sufficient illumination for sensitive processes.
  • Sanmar shipyard has filtered internal ventilation. Dusty and smoky air is sucked and filtered by an effective dust filtering system and released into the air through the chimney which is 3 meters above the shipyard ceiling by ensuring the full conformity with legal mandatory regulations. Sludge and oily water is collected at the end of the shipyard for preventing the sea pollution and stored in sludge tanks until disposing according to legal HSE regulations.
  • Segregation and disposing for hazardous or recyclable waste are applied perfectly.

To achieve our annual company targets about HSE, we are;

  • Establishing documented, audited and maintained HSE Management System,
  • Creating HSE consciousness throughout  the company by daily toolbox talks, and updated job safety analyses,  change management, continuous risk assessments and high intensive internal communications,
  • Being in full compliance with local & international HSE rules and legislations; including Personnel Protective Equipment usage,
  • Implementing safety permits and ambient measurements system for the critical hazardous processes
  • Assessing the risks and hazards, and taking appropriate and timely action with a  proactive approach on people, invest, environment and reputation,
  • Striving to improve our safety culture with a planned training program for all our personnel and leading them to reach the actual theoretical  knowledge, competency & practical experience,
  • Investigating near misses, injuries, unsafe acts, other HSE accidents  and taking corrective actions for a permanent protection system,
  • Applying a programmed safety maintenance and calibration system for the main structure items as overall cranes, fork-lifts and their accessories, pressurized tanks etc.
  • Executing an effective health control and rehabilitation system by ensuring the infirmary services and the continuous supports of contracted health organizations,
  • Performing “Green” purchasing & production facilities,
  • Promoting the best practices to motivate the workers,
  • Tugboat Services are also fully equipped by HSE accoutrements and preventions according to international ship and harbor safety regulations.

SANMAR’s basic principle is, minimizing the OH&S based risks to tolerable levels and if it is possible, eliminating the risks at its source to prevent work-related accidents and occupational diseases.

To achieve our aim, we are committed to:

  • Using “THE SAFEST AND UP TO DATE” Occupational Health and Safety equipment, methods and technologies,
  • “EMPOWERING ALL EMPLOYEES TO STOP ANY INSTANCES OF UNSAFE OR DANGEROUS SITUATIONS” who objectively determine the work to be a threat to employees or the environment,
  • Assessing the OH&S risks and hazards, and taking appropriate and timely preventive action with a “PROACTIVE APPROACH”,
  • Complying with the Local Laws and Legislation; furthermore, continually improving our OH&S  management system performance by monitoring and setting new targets,
  • Training all our personnel and guiding them to reach the actual theoretical  knowledge, competency & practical experience with our “PLANNED TRAINING PROGRAM”,
  • Striving to be a “ROLE MODEL” in our sector with the contribution of all our personnel and suppliers.
  • Preventing and mitigating potential negative impacts (risks and threats) in our operations; continous improvement of actions based on possible positive impacts (opportunities).
