Safety is an important building block for us. Our staff tests all actions and activities based on safety protocols. We are conscious of the role we play within the chain of container logistics. Besides, transporting goods and hazardous substances brings with it great responsibilities. Strict rules apply and Danser always strives to comply with the set regulations. We aim for the highest goal possible: zero incidents!

ADN Safety Advisers

For the management of maritime risks, Danser has appointed internal ADN safety advisers. These advisors have multidisciplinary training and years of experience. Among the checks they perform is a risk assessment.

Our advisers assume a proactive role within the company. They constantly seek to improve processes and increase safety awareness.

Safety on board our ships

All our vessels are equipped with modern technologies and navigation equipment. The aim is to reduce the risks on the waterways. We measure the safety on board our ships based on six criteria. These are maintenance, licenses, crew, compliance, procedures, and environment instructions. For example, we examine the courses followed by our crew. We ensure that the crew is aware of the risks on board.


Barge Vetting System

Danser uses a Barge Vetting System to monitor its fleet. This is a comprehensive safety management system. It contains the technical and operational data of European barges. The software supplies an independent way of assessing whether ships meet the established criteria. The criteria could relate to maintenance, cargo handling, safety, quality, environment, and security.

Hazardous Substances

The onboard team carries the relevant documents when transporting dangerous goods. The documents outline the composition of the load and the amounts transported. For the transport of dangerous goods (ADN), we include the following information:

  • Product name and technical name
  • Class and subclass (if assigned)
  • UN number, preceded by the letters UN
  • Packaging group (if assigned)
  • Number and kind of packaging, and the total quantity of dangerous goods
  • The container number
  • A written statement or additional conditions
