Linsen Nambi Bunkers Service has developed and maintained a Safety Management System (SMS) which is in conformance with Chapter IX of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974 as amended. 

The company has gained International Safety Management (ISM) code accreditation from Detnorske Veritas Germanisher Llody (DNVGL) for the safety systems operated aboard its vessels and its internal administration. This was first achieved in 2008. The company has since undergone both annual and intermediate verification audits to ensure compliance with the code.

The company ‘s operations at present are restricted to Port Operations and therefore negates the requirements of SOLAS Chapter IX implementation aboard the vessels. The Management team at Linsen Nambi have however taken the view that although not a mandatory requirement for its fleet, the company would formulate, implement and maintain a Safety Management System that would ensure compliance with the ISM Code, International Maritime Organisation (IMO), Oil Company International Maritime Federation (OCIMF) and International Oil companies such as Engen, BP and Astron Energy’s internal safety and pollution prevention requirements.

The ISM code provides a compliance framework that allows Linsen Nambi to maintain the highest safety standards aboard its vessels and ensures that the company’s core operations do not negatively impact on its employees, the environment or other stakeholders.

Linsen Nambi Bunker Services is currently the only Port Operations company to hold ISM accreditation. The outstanding safety record aboard the vessels is a testament to the strong safety culture among Officers, Crew and the company’s Management Team.

Health Safety and Environmental protection is built into the core processes of the Organisation and permeates into every sector of operation.
