Through management reviews, Evergreen Line evaluates the adequacy, effectiveness, and suitability of its management system, including stated policies and associated objectives, to ensure that the targets are met. Evergreen Line commits to the following:
Preventing marine accidents is a very basic measure to protect the environment. Training and education are key to implement environmental thinking in all safety procedures. Evergreen Seafarer Training Center educates staff and onboard crews, upgrading their professional capability to ensure the safety of the crew, the ships and the customers’ cargo. Through organised courses and practical exercises, Evergreen Line reinforces the professional expertise of its onboard crews and prevents marine pollution and marine accidents. The training takes place onboard the ships regularly and involves a range of subjects such as emergencies, fire and safety drills and the latest regulations and environmental practices.
All new employees are required to take a training course in marine environment awareness. It includes learning about the environmental policy, global requirements and compliance to the US VGP, oil transfer procedures, pollution prevention and safe bunkering, garbage handling and disposal, biofouling management, instructions to BMP, the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan and maintenance and operation record methods including ballast water treatment systems.
