Safety is Our #1 Priority. Period. 

No matter what project our experienced and highly trained managers, supervisors, foremen and technicians are working on, safety is at the heart of everything we do. Our Health & Safety Manager, Michael Ory, has over 26 years of experience and oversees all of Ship Tech's health, safety and training matters.

We are keenly aware of common hazards that our employees and independent contractors could be exposed to, including but not limited to, atmospheric, biological, physical, mechanical and chemical hazards. To combat these hazards, our team is trained to recognize potential issues; use the proper procedures and practices; recognize and report any adverse health effects; understand the physical signs and reactions related to exposures; and is meticulously trained on taking the appropriate emergency response procedures in a variety of situations.

Having an internal structure such as that of Ship Tech Services, which efficiently and effectively deals with emergency situations if and when they arise is key to achieving our ultimate goal of a safe and accident-free workplace.
