QHSSE is central to everything we do. Through a relentless pursuit of the very best QHSSE standards, we can not only safeguard health and environment, but also continuously enhance our business and ensure high quality deliveries for our clients around the world.

Safe and secure operations

An unprecedented geopolitical situation and the increased global demand for energy have changed our business landscape. Odfjell Technology has chosen to highlight security, including cyber security, as part of the 2023 QHSSE programme.
An increased demand for energy and a higher level of activity require relentless assurance of competence and capacity.
This programme further identifies the areas that are always important for us to ensure the highest QHSSE performance.
I encourage everyone to risk assess every work task, to stop and reassess if any changes occur, and to never compromise on safety.
