High standards and improvements

It is an important part of our daily efforts that we continually improve on protecting our employees, setting the highest standard for quality and reducing our environmental impact

Commitment, training and a constant pursuit of better performance is the foundation of our HSSEQ initiatives.

One of our tools to achieve excellence within all areas of HSSEQ is our Management System ensuring continual improvements in all parameters.

We are committed to set the highest standards within HSSEQ to protect the environment, our company and our most important asset – our employees.

Dangerous and sensitive cargo

We are certified to transport all types of dangerous and sensitive goods. We can also provide a safe location for storage and you can let us take care of documentation and filing in the documents. We know exactly how to do this for any type of shipment. The legislation for dangerous and sensitive cargo may seem like a jungle, but with a partner like Blue Water, you will be sure to find a safe way out.
