The protection of our environment has become increasingly more important as the world continues to develop and populations grow. One industry which has grown substantially is ship building, as the trading of goods and supplies between nations increases in an era of globalisation.
Many countries and industries across the globe have agreed to take various actions in order to cut down on pollution. The Hong Kong Convention is a unique agreement that aims to improve standards of safety and reduce environmental pollution resulting from the recycling of ships.
Lucion Marine are experts in the field of hazard management and have offices based in both London and Singapore. They are able to provide a professional service by being a trusted partner during the ship building process. By consulting with Lucion throughout the build, all hazardous materials can be identified and built into the final IHM document.
The SOLAS agreement is an international treaty which is designed to ensure that safety standards are adhered to and it prohibits the use of asbestos. Without a complete material declaration form it allows for the unknown usage of this deadly substance within new build vessels, which can ruin the reputation of your business as it endangers both workers and the public.
