At E.N. Bisso, we consider safety and accident prevention to be the primary and fundamental responsibility of each employee. The safety of our people, vessels and the environment are given the greatest consideration when undertaking any operation. Our safety goals are Zero Injuries, Zero Accidents and Zero Pollution.
E.N. Bisso is an ISM Certified vessel operator. We use proven software to support the processes outlined in our Safety Management System and preventive maintenance program. Additionally, all E.N. Bisso tugs are certified by the U.S. Coast Guard.
We conduct comprehensive checks and inspections of all vessel systems, components, and safety and lifesaving equipment on regularly scheduled intervals. We use an experienced and knowledgeable contractor to conduct comprehensive audits of our processes and procedures aboard each vessel to ensure our crews and our vessels remain in full compliance with our Safety Management System.
We are a responsible steward of the environment and an industry advocate as demonstrated by our membership in the American Waterways Operators (AWO), Greater New Orleans Harbor Safety Committee, Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA) and the New Orleans Board of Trade.
