Safety and security
We employ more than 100,000 people across 130 countries. It is our prime responsibility to keep them safe and secure while they work at sea, in the air, and in terminals, warehouses and offices.
Why safety and security matter
Safety and security at work is a basic human right. As a global employer, we have a duty of care for all our employees worldwide as well as anyone operating on our sites.
Constant care is a core value at Maersk. We see safety and security as our first ethical priority towards our employees, their families and our communities.
We ensure that everyone gets home safe by preventing fatal and life-altering incidents.

Monitoring and acting on emerging security risks
As we expand into new industries and markets, so does our need to understand and proactively manage emerging security risks – especially in this time of increasing geopolitical tension, local armed conflicts and civil unrest.
We closely monitor the security conditions of our operating sites and respond quickly when necessary. In 2022, we strengthened our security protocols for operations in high-risk countries in response to emerging threats, including the war in Ukraine and risks connected to our operations in Myanmar.
