Shipping is an international business with many different nationalities, who work closely together on a daily basis. Depending on what part of the world we are from, we perceive things differently. In Nordic Tankers, we believe that knowledge, understanding and respect of different cultures, values and perceptions are essential success factors. Therefore, we have a strong focus on culture in order to optimize cooperation and safety awareness.

We believe that leaders are great role models in that respect. Our leaders have to be first in line to adjust their own behavior, when we need to strengthen our safety cultural awareness.

Therefore, cultural awareness is an integrated part of our training. Through our feedback culture, we openly discuss safety performance with our colleagues onboard and ashore through safety meetings, our Global Safety Day, crew conferences and safety workshops. 

At the end of the day, our customers need a reliable partner that offers safe and high quality shipping services. That is what we want to deliver.
