Safety Ashore and at Sea

Superior training and regular exercises are the best insurance against unexpected issues. Therefore, frequent safety drills concerning different scenarios like firefighting or first response are held aboard our ships as well as in our offices and sales points. Our specialized personnel is trained following ISM standards and regularly gets the opportunity to take part in additional safety trainings in collaboration with international authorities and naval forces.

Thus, we not only want to comply to international safety standards at FRS but to set standards ourselves – for the benefit of our customers as well as our employees.

Coordinating Situations

Even the best possible preparation cannot include all eventualities. In the event of such a crisis, established processes ashore and at sea allow for a prompt reaction and the immediate introduction of appropriate countermeasures.
