Everyone has a role in BP Shipping's success and safety performance. Onshore the role is to provide support to the fleet so those at sea can manage the risk of delivering BP's cargoes safely, efficiently and on time.
On board, the Master is ultimately responsible for the safety of his crew and vessel. He is supported by modern and reliable equipment, robust procedures and competent people.
BP Shipping has a proactive safety training programme for those at sea. Training onboard is provided by Fleet Safety Training Officers, who typically spend one to three weeks onboard a ship, depending on its schedule and the training need.
Training is also provided onshore and through computer-based training modules.
