Mark Voorham

CEO SMT Shipping

SMT Shipping believes strongly that all employees have the right to a healthy and safe workplace. As SMT leadership, we cannot emphasize enough how important your role is in keeping yourself and your colleagues safe. Throughout your work day, the only person that is always available to look after your own safety is you. Make a commitment every day to take an active role in safety. You can serve as a role model for others by following health and safety regulations, maintaining a clean and orderly work area, and wearing your personal protective equipment.

 We understand that time pressure may lead you to think speed is the only answer. Yet United States Military Special Forces operators have a motto: “Slow is smooth, smooth is fast”. 90% of the time, performing tasks at maximum speed may lead to positive results. Yet 1 time in 10, reckless speed will lead to catastrophic outcomes that can cause both bodily harm and damage to our business. We therefore ask for you to get involved and communicate when you see opportunities to enhance workplace safety. We want to hear from you. If we are all empowered, we can together work to achieve the highest standards of safety, health, and environmental stewardship.
