Woojung Marine is committed to Health, Safety and the Environment (HSE). We take personal responsibility for HSE because we care. All incidents can be prevented and we strive continuously for zero accident to personnel, material and non-material assets. Just because we care!

HSE (Health, Safety and Environment)

We focus on employee health and on continuously improving the work environment. We conduct our operations through efficient use of material and energy with minimum waste and damage to the environment.

We design our products and services to be environment friendly, to be safe and to be efficient in consuming energy and natural resources. We seek to ensure that our products can be recycled or disposed of safety.

Why HSE?

Our main focus in health, safety and environment is on three different purposes:

(i) the maintenance and promotion of workers’ health and working capacity; (ii) the improvement of working environment and work to become conducive to safety and health and (iii) development of work organizations and working cultures in a direction which supports health and safety at work and in doing so also promotes a positive social climate and smooth operation and may enhance productivity of the undertakings. The concept of working culture is intended in this context to mean a reflection of the essential value systems adopted by the undertaking concerned. Such a culture is reflected in practice in the managerial systems, personnel policy, principles for participation, training policies and quality management of the undertaking."

There are three reasons occupational safety and health is a concern:

  • duty of reasonable care; unacceptability of putting health and safety of people at risk; society’s attitude to moral obligations; making the moral case to senior management
  • the preventive (enforcement), punitive (through criminal sanctions), and compensatory effects of law
  • direct and indirect costs associated with incidents and/or unhealthy workplaces and their impact on the organization (includes insured and un-insured costs)
