Work for Safety
The Company puts the highest priority on safe operation of its vessels and makes continuous efforts to improve its safety performance.
Koyo Kaiun has complied with the ISM code since 1996, refining the Koyo Safety System (KSS) which was already in use. Vessels such as product and chemical tankers require sophisticated technology and any accidents could result in a disaster. Thus, the Company places extra emphasis on retaining experienced and high-quality crew for its vessels. The combined efforts of good crew, good help from shore, and good management are an absolute necessity in living up to the social expectations placed upon the tanker industry. Koyo Kaiun is striving for this objective every day.
"Safety First" is an attitude that we all share. We are following all rules and regulations to ensure that there are no accidents.
Grounded in our rules on safety, we will continuously improve and provide a high quality shipping service to meet our customers' requirements.
We prepare and maintain a working environment that keeps all our crews and employees healthy.

It is important for safety and smooth cargo operation.

Check Everything at Dry-Docking
Drydocking is the only opportunity to visually check the condition of the vessel's bottom.
We clean, maintain and re-paint the vessel’s hull as required.
Checking of all cargo tanks is carried out by our well-experienced superintendents, making sure there are no cracks, pinholes or rust.
Advanced navigation equipment is necessary for safe voyages.
Regular maintenance of the equipment ensures safe sailing in the middle of the ocean or in a narrow strait.
Training Crews to be Experts
Training on Vessels
Marine Superintendents regularly carry out seminars and emergency training onboard.
We have an organization that reacts immediately in case of emergency.
Training on Shore
We are continuously improving and standardizing the skills of crews by holding seminars ashore regularly.
Cadets who are less-experienced may embark on vessels through on-the-job training, where they are coached by well-experienced engineers and officers.
We have an excellent training program that allows cadets to improve their skills.
