ISO 14001 Training requirement

ISO 14001 requires all personnel whose work may create a significant impact on the environment will have received appropriate training. Professional certification such as Certificates of Competency, in-house training and onboard training such as oil spill drills will generally cover this requirement. However any additional training needs will be reviewed for ships to be accredited with ISO14001.

Notwithstanding the above, all ship and shore staff will undergo environmental awareness training to ensure that the Company policy is understood and followed.
