Safety - BV Surveyor

At Bureau Veritas, safety is an Absolute. Our aim is to protect crews, assets and the environment. This is a sensibility we aim to spread throughout the marine and offshore industry with our Rules, facilitated in part by our Research and Development (R&D) projects.

The maritime world is inherently full of risk – but our R&D projects, both in-house and in collaboration with other stakeholders – aim to assess and address them to improve safety. Our projects include improving fire safety and assessing and mitigating risk for alternatively fueled ships.
