Drydocks World the leading service provider to the shipping, onshore /offshore oil and gas energy sectors successfully attained a 5 star grading from the British Safety Council. This audit verifies Drydocks World as a facility that goes further than the required compliance and achieves the highest international best practice standards.

Consolidating and strengthening a culture of occupational health and safety throughout the organization is a strategic initiative to maintaining the yards position as a world class facility capable of completing complex maritime infrastructure projects. Drydocks World strives to consistently improve and achieve sustainable business growth while always upholding the yards core value of a safe work environment.

The yard achieved an audited score of 96.26%, which is regarded as one of the highest scores internationally based on the new audit criteria. This 5 star grading is reflected through the safety milestones achieved on some of the yards largest projects during 2016: on the RP clusters Kvaerner project Drydocks World achieved 1 million man-hours without LTI and on the FPSO Cyrus conversion project the yard completed 2 million man-hours without LTI. Drydocks World has maintained a British Safety Council 5 star rating since 2003 and the yard will continue safely serving the world’s maritime industry.
