Safety Vision

To deliver on our core value of Safety, we will seek out and reduce exposure to injuries, develop safety leadership and continually improve. We will never give up on our goal of achieving and maintaining an injury-free workplace.

Our Vision is Reflected in these Guiding Principles:

  • Safety is the responsibility of everyone at Seaspan.

Our Safety Vision is Alive when we see:

  • Leaders articulating our Safety Vision with passion, support, and action.
  • Managers setting safety goals, creating safety improvements, and communicating and recognizing the success of their teams.
  • Supervisors are role models of safe work behaviours, teaching, supporting and mentoring their teams, and acting on employee safety concerns.
  • Employees consistently demonstrating safe behaviours, acting to stop unsafe behaviours, and seeking continuous safety improvements in our workplace.
