Crew Policy

The crew is the most important factor in ship management and the quality of the people working onboard a vessel is the key to success.

The safety and welfare of any person on board is of utmost importance to the company, both as a human being and as a professional seaman. The company entrust these women and men the responsibility to operate and maintain the vessels according to national and international rules and regulations, the safety management system, to the owners requirements and to our customers’ satisfaction.

Knutsen seek long term perspectives in our business approach and developments, and we seek continuity with our crew in order to enhance safety and to serve our customers needs:

  • Continuity will give better understanding for our business needs, our corporate culture, our operating procedures and our policies and requirements
  • Each individual is encouraged to complete necessary training and courses required for safe and efficient operation.
  • Communication is crucial. English is the company working language.

The working environment in Knutsen and on board all our vessels shall be based on an open and friendly atmosphere, but where opinions are welcomed and discussed and not suppressed.
