Community engagement

Our top priority is safety at sea and prevention of human loss of life and injury.  
We aspire to make TMI ships vessels of choice for crew and an attractive career prospect, to promote diversity and equality of opportunity, and to engage with communities where we operate.

TMI seeks to ensure that the interests of the communities which we work with are supported and we achieve this through:

  • Ensuring we comply with relevant laws and regulations including the Maritime Labour Convention (2006) regulating working hours and welfare standards for crew
  • Providing training and seminars for officers and crew to promote safety culture and a whistleblowing policy for crew
  • Focusing on onboard wellbeing: providing high speed broadband, healthy menu plans, mentoring, sharing best practice, offering mental health support
  • Advocating for COVID 19 welfare: signatory to ‘Neptune Declaration’ and industry initiative calling for ‘key worker’ status for seafarers globally; providing additional oxygen supplies to vessels; sponsoring vaccinations where it is possible
  • Promoting diversity and equality of opportunity. Our ships’ crew number almost 500 and span about 7 different nationalities. We promote opportunities for female seafarers on board our vessels and welcomed our first female officer cadet in October 2021
  • Contributing to communities we impact by supporting seafarer welfare charities including the Mission to Seafarers
