“The safety of our employees is our responsibility and focus, and the loss of seven colleagues in 2018 alone, clearly underlines the need for change in our safety approach to make sure all employees can go to work not only feeling safe, but being safe” Søren Skou, CEO, A.P. Moller - Maersk.


Our overriding ambition is to ensure that A.P. Moller-Maersk is a safe place to work.

Targets 2018

Zero fatalities. Continuous improvement in targets for lost-time incidents going towards zero.

Progress 2018

Started a safety transformation journey with a new safety approach developed to be rolled out from leadership level, starting January 2019. To guide the process of change, a new corporate safety function was established in late 2018, to formulate the overall safety strategy and to facilitate best practice sharing.

Seven fatalities.

Total LTlf at 1.29.

Targets 2019

New targets for safety will be developed in 2019, aligned with the new approach to focus on building resilience, capacity and controls. This still entails the ambition of no colleagues losing their life working for A.P. Moller-Maersk in 2019.
