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

Health, Safety, Security, Environment & Quality

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.

All employees worldwide can access the system which describes best practice throughout the organisation based on our past experiences.

Great achievements require teamwork, and all Blue Water employees shall comply with existing laws and regulations, encourage a safe workplace and make an effort to protect our colleagues. This reflects our spirit, values and culture. Measuring our performance is part of ensuring our progress.

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

Global Health Policy

A healthy workforce is vital for our success, and we encourage our employees to be active, have fun, create social relations internally and strengthen our teamwork and culture through sports activities.

Global Safety Policy

Every Blue Water employee has the right to a safe workplace with a minimum of risks. We are committed to keep working for improvements, provide training and education for all employees, and we encourage a ‘zero incident' workplace.

Our standards for safety are accessible for all offices and employees at all times through our Global Management System.

Global Environmental Policy

Blue Water is focused on continuously reducing environmental impact based on defined improvement targets.

Our initiatives include a proactive effort to reduce waste, consumption of energy, usage of fuel and prevent spills. Also, we motivate clients and suppliers to give priority to environmentally friendly transport solutions.

Global Quality Policy

Quality is an important aspect in Blue Water’s daily efforts to create the best solutions for all clients.

We have defined quality objectives and planned activities applying for all Blue Water offices in the world. To achieve the standards we aim for, we have a Global Quality Policy stating our aim and means to achieve and fulfil our quality objectives.


Blue Water's HQ in Esbjerg, Denmark is certified according to ISO 45001 (Health & Safety), ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environment). We strive to give our business the best support when it comes to tools and standards, and we have a corporate process in place to assist during a certification project of 8-12 months.

We are business-driven, and the business chooses whether a certification process should be initiated. Several of our strategic locations are certified, and we expect more locations to follow in the future.

Code of Conduct and ethics

Since issuing our first Code of Conduct, we have been implementing new standards into our ethical guidelines, and we are continuously adjusting our code of conduct in order to follow global patterns of responsible behaviour.

We care for reliable and devoted suppliers believing that the industry has a joint obligation.
