Activities for Safety

In submarine cable handling works, a high risk of accidents exists always because of onboard works, high tension on cables and so on. By recognizing the safety as the first priority and assuring the following measures, KCS is always trying to prevent accidents at the cable operating sites:

  • to have internal meetings prior to the cable operation, trying to identify all suspected risks during the work
  • to have meetings focusing on the safety with members of partner companies at the work site before and after the work
  • to check safety measures on each step of operations
  • to have meetings of the safety and health promotion committee
  • to have field inspection

Activities for Quality Management

KCS obtained ISO9002:1994 certification on November 5, 1999, which is the international standard of quality management system.
