- Safety Measures
Approach to transport safety management
In our ship operations (irregular passenger service operations), in addition to establishing our "Basic policy on transportation safety" and "Priority measures for safety" based on the safety management regulations, Sealine Tokyo, Co., Ltd. takes steps to ensure that all employees understand these policies and measures and exercises full diligence in customer safety management.
[Basic policy on transportation safety]
The company president is deeply aware that transportation safety assurance is the core of our business management and carries out a leading role in ensuring transportation safety within the company. Moreover, we give careful consideration to conditions in the workplace and take seriously any feedback on workplace safety, and to ensure that our employees understand that transportation safety is of the utmost importance, Safety first (placing top priority on safety in all operations) is placed as the first article of the Hato Bus Group's business policies and efforts are made to ensure all employees are aware of this policy, including the display of this motto in work areas.
By diligently establishing, carrying out, and verifying transportation safety plans and implementing improvements based thereon (Plan, Do, Check, Act), constantly revising our safety measures, and ensuring our members work in unison, we are exercising our commitment to the continual improvement of transportation safety.
