Health, Safety & Environment Policies

Nautilus Pacific Ltd has an impeccable safety record and owes this acclaim to our environmental & safety policies. While it is our aim to provide an outstanding service for our clients, all our operations will be carried out to the highest safety standard with strict adherence to incident-free protocol.


Safety Policy

Nautilus Pacific Ltd is committed to the health and safety of it’s employees, contractors and clients and this is among the most important considerations in any company endeavours or operations.

The protection of the environment and Company assets are also regarded primary concerns. There are no operations considered so important that we cannot take the time to do it safely and properly.

This philosophy enables Nautilus Pacific to deliver a safe and high quality service to it’s employees, contractors and clients.

It is, therefore, Nautilus Pacific’s policy to provide a place of employment which endeavors to reduce or remove, as far as reasonably practicable, recognized hazards, provide incident and accident prevention systems and awareness, and comply with Maritime New Zealand Safe Ship Management Regulations.

Recognizing that safety, hazard awareness and prevention and environmental protection are corporate and operational responsibilities, this policy requires all employees, contractors and visitors, to be responsible for the prevention of work place related illness and injuries, property damage and environmental incidents or accidents.

Should an employee, contractor or client feel any aspect of the ship is being run in a unsafe manner they are to report their concerns directly to the Master of the vessel or company management. Nautilus Pacific’s safety record will be the measure of the philosophy of this policy.
