The Horizon Lines Safety Program is designed around the four pillars of Leadership, Education, Attitude, and Diligence (L.E.A.D.). As such, the program is a partnership of shipboard and corporate management working together to create the safest ships in the industry. Aiming to LEAD the way in maritime safety, every crew member and employee plays an intricate part in our overall goal of ‘Zero’ injuries.

Our Promise

In pursuit of the Horizon Lines safety vision of Living Injury Free Everyday (L.I.F.E.), Horizon Lines will commit to the following:

  1. Make safety, the environment, and the health and well-being of our associates an integral part of all business activities.

  2. Adhere to the highest standards in the construction, operation and maintenance of our assets to protect the environment, our employees, our customers and the people in the communities in which we do business.

  3. Ensure that economic considerations do not take priority over safety, health and environmental protection.

  4. Seek continuous improvements in the protection of environment, health and safety.
