    APL named 'Ship Operator Of The Year' at Safety at Sea Awards 2017

    APL was named ‘Ship Operator of the Year’ at the Safety at Sea Awards 2017 in London last evening. The award is a recognition of APL’s safe working practices and initiatives which have demonstrably improved the work life and welfare of sea crew on board APL-operated vessels, the company said in its press release.

    In 2016, APL invested over 5% of its total manning crew costs in ship staff training. Together with APL’s robust enforcement of safety protocols that enable early detection as well as prevention and mitigation of associated operational risks, APL recorded its 9th consecutive year of zero fatality; and a low lost-time injury frequency rate of 1.80 incidents per million man hours last year.

    To optimise the safety of seafarers onboard its vessels, APL also deploys the latest navigation assistance tools and technologies that track and analyse wide-ranging nautical, meteorological and geographic information from ashore in real-time – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Based on live analytics of its vessels’ operating speeds, ocean currents, weather forecasts and high traffic areas, a team of onshore experts are empowered to assess, anticipate and mitigate any navigation-related risks to its vessel operations.

    Complementing the efforts, route optimisation systems are being installed onboard the APL vessel fleet. These systems take into account the hydrodynamic properties of the vessel, loading parameters and weather forecasts to map out the safest and most efficient voyage that enable ship officers to make best informed and real-time navigation decisions throughout its voyage.
