ISM Management Review Conference

Members of various SMT departments convened in Sopot, Poland, on March 7th and 8th, 2024, for an ISM Management Review Conference aimed at fortifying our commitment to safe operational excellence. The event, marked by insightful discussions and strategic goal setting, is in line with the unwavering commitment to achieving our safety objectives.

One of the important agendas of the conference was to evaluate our performance in key areas such as accident reduction, vessel detentions, and pollution mitigation. Through analysis and collective brainstorming, attendees explored the successes and challenges encountered in meeting these objectives. Acknowledging the need for continuous improvement, several safety and vetting initiatives were unveiled during the conference, including the revised SMT Academy. This innovative platform promises to empower our workforce with enhanced safety protocols and comprehensive training modules, elevating our operational standards to new heights. 

A highlight of the event was the special recognition ceremony, a tribute to the exemplary efforts of our safety champions. Krzysztof Krzyzaniak, from the SMT Shipping Poland fleet, was awarded the prestigious title of Safety Champion of the Year 2023 for his unwavering commitment to safety protocols and proactive approach towards risk management. Waldemar Nagorski, representing the SMT Cement fleet, was honoured for his outstanding contributions in upholding safety standards.

The conference served as a testament to our collective resolve to prioritize safety in all facets of our operations. By celebrating achievements, addressing challenges, and embracing innovation, we reaffirmed our commitment to fostering a culture of safety excellence within the SMT family.
