Bureau Veritas recognises MSC Cruises with Safety Best Practices 2016 Award

07/09/16

Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, September 07, 2016 - Leading international classification society Bureau Veritas has recognised MSC Cruises with the 2016 Special Safety Best Practices Award for the high level of voluntary-enhanced safety procedures implemented across its entire fleet.

 

The Award follows the performance of additional drills witnessed by Bureau Veritas for better training and readiness of the crew in case of Fire, Damage Stability and Passenger Evacuation situations. This project, demonstrating high training skills and adherence to performing internal safety procedures over a continuous period, was initiated in 2012 and conducted by five BV survey centres in Europe, USA, South America, North Africa and Asia, covering the entire MSC Cruises fleet.


Philippe Donche-Gay, President of Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore Division says, "We are pleased to provide support and recognition for the extensive efforts and investments which MSC Cruises makes in safety, going above and beyond industry and international requirements."

 

Emilio La Scala, President & Managing Director, MSC Cruise Management says: "When it comes to on-board safety, MSC Cruises will always strive to be at the forefront of innovation. We are thus highly honoured to receive this international recognition, as the safety and security of our guests and crew are and will always be our number one priority."
