SEALAKE TERMINAL B.V. health and safety, quality and the environment are core elements of our activities and culture.

When performing its services, SEALAKE TERMINAL B.V. Promotes staff innovation, quality and safety of people as well as integrity of the client’s assets in order to meet the growing demands of the market, the authorities and end users.

Beyond the services we offer at SEALAKE TERMINAL B.V., we strive to improve the quality and safety of our management systems for the benefit of the environment and our relations with our client, staff and supplier relations.

The active support of all our team enables us to meet this commitment at all levels of management: divisional, regional and national.

We achieve these changes by establishing good practice that promotes and supports the numerous initiatives developed at local level. As a result, responsible practices and behavior are promoted throughout the entire business.

The principles governing these activities are detailed in our health, safety, quality and environment (HSQE) policy and in our environmental management policy, both of which comply with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.

As a large company involving many people, the management of health and safety is an important responsibility. To avoid any risk of accidents, Sealake has introduced a culture where involvement and awareness lead to intrinsically safe ways of working. Health and safety management also applies, of course, to the products that Sealake stores and delivers. The company ensures that the quality of all products under its responsibility is preserved. The same awareness and responsibility applies to its environmental management, which has led to improved operational methods and the more efficient use of resources.

 

ENVIRONMENT

Sealake is fully committed to running its business in a way that respects the environment and minimises the impact on it. To achieve this, Sealake constantly checks its operational procedures and makes sure that appropriate and effective technology is used.
Sealake also places a great deal of importance on the responsible use of energy and environmental awareness. Energy consumption is limited wherever possible by implementing effective measures and using smart systems. Every effort is made to reduce waste output. Workers are trained to reduce wastewater, energy consumption and the use of chemicals. Sealake conducts its environmental policy through proper governance and fully complies with the environmental legislation.

 

QUALITY

Extensive quality management over the last 10 years has resulted in a far-reaching renewal initiative for the terminals, barges and equipment. As well as improving general operational safety, this has brought the quality of the terminals and ships up to the highest level. The risk of breakdown or contamination of products has been minimised with the newly developed automation system. This controls pipes, connections, valves and tanks in such a way that human error is virtually eliminated.
