Lae Family Day 2023

24 November 2023

A day filled with good food, good company and lots of fun. We took some time to celebrate our Lae staff and their families last Saturday, at the Scrum Oval. We all had a wonderful time, participating in a plethora of games and activities throughout the day, with the famous, and highly regarded tug-of-war being the highlight of the day. Sizzling hot BBQ was served with food for all, fairy floss sticks and lots of ice-cream to go around.

Steamships Family Days are a time for management to say thank you to our team members for their tireless efforts throughout the year. It is a chance for our families to get involved, to be part of the Steamships family, meet our colleagues, as well as an opportunity for all divisions to come together as one to celebrate another fantastic year. The Executive Management team from Port Moresby also flew in to partake in the festivities, taking time to meet and mingle with the wider team.

A special thank you to Innovative Agro Industry (IAI) Ltd. (Illimo Diary) for joining us on the day, with it’s much loved mascot handing out samples of Illimo Milk and Joi Juice to our team members. We also were pleased to have our joint venture business Colgate-Palmolive join with a very special guest, Dr. Rabbit.

A great start to Thursday morning with one of Steamships’ Community Grants Programme recipients, the incredible group of women from the Sea Women of Melanesia-PNG, supported by the Coral Sea Foundation.

The ladies were training 4 new graduates on correctly monitoring and recording the topography of reefs needing rehabilitation.

SWoM continues to raise awareness of the ecological and social value of the Coral Sea and Eastern Coral Triangle implementing sustainable management techniques.

01 September 2023

On Friday 1st September, Steamships Group held the 2023 Steamships Safety Day Forum at the Gateway Hotel on Friday, 1st of September 2023. The forum celebrated the event centered around the theme: Leveraging International Standards to Improve Safety Performance. Participants included executive management, key operational and health & safety personnel from Steamships Business divisions.

We had the pleasure of hosting guest speakers: Fabien Segura - HSSE Director at TotalEnergies, Caroline Henderson - HSE Manager at ExxonMobil , Ian Offland - Safety Coordinator at John Swire & Sons Group of companies and David Hurst – Enterprise Account Manager at PAN Software, share their knowledge and experience with our teams. This was followed by a panel discussion moderated by Mr. Peter Aitsi, Steamships Board of Director. Several ideas were deliberated, and learnings were shared from the different operating companies particularly with leadership and culture and how this is demonstrated clearly through implementation of international standards such as One-MAESTRO (Management and Expectation Standards Towards Robust Operations), OIMS (Operations Integrity Management System), ISM Code (International Safety Management), HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) and ISO standards.

The afternoon session consisted of workshops whereby representatives from Joint Venture Port Services, Consort Express Lines and Pacific Palms Property presented on risks specific to their operations and the tools used to minimize those risks.

Steamships Managing Director, Rupert Bray, closed the commemoration presenting emphasis to participants to be genuinely “curious”, yet confident to challenge authority and apply a STOP WORK approach when they deem an unsafe work environment.

“It is through this approach that we cultivate a culture that enables everyone to participate in continuously improving safety performance throughout Steamships.”
