Safety first – always

Our number one guiding principle: We do not compromise on safety.


We transport and store some of the world's most hazardous liquids through some of the world's most fragile environments. We store chemicals at our terminals, close to people's homes. Society, and our customers, trust us to handle these chemicals while adhering to the highest standards of safety and quality control. It is a great responsibility. That is why safety is integral to everything we do and is our number one priority.

We believe that all accidents related to people, the environment, and assets can be prevented. The safety and wellbeing of our people are essential to achieving our business goals.

As a company, we have a holistic approach to safety, focusing on minimizing the risks for anyone involved in our business, setting high standards, and actively building an exemplary safety culture.

Odfjell is committed to the IOGP Life-Saving Rules. The Life-Saving Rules supplement and support existing Odfjell management systems, programs and policies.

Our core business, operating ships and terminals, is governed by regulations that put health and safety front and center. Odfjell complies with all relevant health and safety regulations and requirements. The safety management system for our ships is certified according to the ISM Code, and the safety management system for terminals is certified and audited through the CDI-T process.
