Health & Safety

Excellence in health and safety is an important value of our company. We aim to prevent all accidents, injuries and occupational illness. We are dedicated to harmonize company-wide internal regulations and be more stringent about establishing the use of the best available techniques.

HSSE policies, guidelines & measures

HSSE policies, guidelines & measures

In our HSSE Policy, we commit to preventing all accidents, injuries and occupational illness, and to protect the environment. We therefore continually optimize all of our subsidiaries’ activities with a view to technical, organizational and behavior-based safety and promote a proactive safety culture.

The HSSE & Sustainability Team in Hamburg develops guidelines and minimum requirements for all subsidiaries. Targets are set and the performance is benchmarked to achieve continuous improvement.

One significant measure is the continuous growth and improvement of our safety culture. Our culture is based on and supported by our people contributing to safe working behavior and on comprehensive manuals.

HSSE Policy

Reporting & learning

Our employees and leaders are strongly committed to create a safe work environment – for our own employees, companies and partners we do business with.

Therefore, our focus is on the prevention of accidents and to identify early alarms to implement appropriate measures prior an incident occurs. Mabanaft carefully monitors their leading and lagging KPIs to understand route causes, impacting factors and to take the right action. All incidents are reported and managed by all employees in a central tool to ensure that knowledge and learnings can be shared across all entities to prevent incidents and their reoccurrence.

To monitor compliance with our internal standards, we regularly conduct internal HSSE audits to allow continuous improvement.

Risk assessment

Risk assessment

Due to the variety of activities within the group of companies it is important to evaluate all risks individually. Based on this analysis we implement tailor-made measures and establish tailor-made standards and work instructions. To learn from accidents, our engagement goes beyond purely statistical evaluations. Accidents are analyzed in detail to identify company-wide potential for improvement. In addition, our proactive approach is supported by promotion campaigns that are designed to increase risk awareness in the workaday routine.

Safe shipping

Safe shipping

Moving petroleum products in any of their forms by ship always includes the risk of accidental product releases and subsequent environmental damage and could also impact our climate protection targets.

The Mabanaft Ship Charter Policy is our foundation for safe shipping and environmental protection and strict adherence to the ever-changing regulations and requirements of the international tanker shipping world. Special attention has to be given to efficient logistics to avoid emissions but also to the quality of the chartered ships with regard to various acceptance criteria.

The Mabanaft Group works with a global leader in commercial ship vetting offering the world’s most comprehensive risk management system used by our operators in Supply and Trading.

Involvement in associations

Involvement in associations

We have a vital interest in the safe operation of tankers and terminals. Therefore, our group of companies is – via our holding company Marquard & Bahls – a member of the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) and actively involved in promoting continuous improvement in safety standards.
