Adsteam Felixstowe recently became the latest of the company's UK ports to achieve compliance with the International Safety Management (ISM) code, following an audit by Lloyds Register.

This international standard is only mandatory for ships over 500 grt, but the staff and crews at Adsteam Felixstowe applied for voluntary compliance as part of the company's drive towards continuous business improvement and the highest standards of health and safety.

The audit encompassed environmental and health and safety standards throughout the Felixstowe operation, as well as the crew and staff's understanding of specific areas of responsibility and roles, both at sea and ashore.

Commenting on the success of the audit, Chief Executive Stephen Eastwood said: "This is an excellent result by Mike Breeze and his team at Felixstowe, which will encourage other UK ports to undertake the same rigorous process. As a company, Adsteam is totally committed to ensuring the safe operation of tugs at all times and welcomes voluntary initiatives such as these which can only help to improve our business processes and standards."

Felixstowe Port Manager Mike Breeze, is proud of the team's achievement: "Much of the work in developing ISM in Felixstowe was carried out by the crews. To achieve compliance is a very disciplined procedure, so to have done so seamlessly while carrying out their regular duties shows the professionalism and dedication of our team. "

Adsteam is the UK's leading supplier of towage services, with operations at six key ports: Felixstowe, Southampton, Medway, Humber, Liverpool and London. One of the longest-established ship-assist specialists in this field, the company has been operating throughout the country for over a century.
