SAFETY PROGRAM & COMPLIANCE
Freedom Marine Services is fully dedicated to the health and safety of our employees and protecting the environment in which we all live and work. One of the essential ingredients in accomplishing our safety program objectives is the strict adherence to all applicable laws and U.S. Coast Guard regulations. Success in this mission is achieved through compliance with the company safety guidelines, policies and procedures. FREEDOM MARINE SERVICES (www.freedom-marine.com) is committed to a safe and secure working environment and will institute and enforce measures required to achieve that goal.
Our vessels and crew abide by our strict environmental program established for Freedom Marine. We have a strategic plan in place for implementing specific procedures for a variety of commonplace and unusual circumstances. The master of each vessel is a proactive environmental steward. Our crew and company personnel are all well-trained to carefully follow safe and environmentally-sound procedures for disposal of waste and filters, for responsible handling of hazardous cargo, and for managing and reporting oil spills and other potentially dangerous or harmful substances. We pride ourselves on being an offshore supply vessel company our customers can trust for reliable and safe daily operations.
Freedom Marine Services promises quality customer service while maintaining health, safety and environmental protection for our crew, our vendors and our fellow workers in the Gulf.
