With a pool of 7,000 seafarers worldwide and a network of wholly owned training centres, Wallem provides skilled and professional crew in all roles to meet the needs of your trade and fleet. We take pride in our crew – and they, in turn, take pride in looking after your vessels.
Safety and quality go hand in hand and permeate everything we do. In addition to our ‘Target Zero’ vision for zero injuries, zero spills and zero accidents, we have developed a culture of continuous improvement and a compliance roadmap towards operational excellence.
Recognising that a competent crew is essential to safe and efficient vessel operations, Wallem takes training seriously. Our network of training centres ensures crew are equipped with technical proficiency, understand the commercial realities of vessel operations, and stay focused on compliance and safety. We also train them in the soft skills required to run ships in today's high-pressure environment.
Maintaining high levels of competence requires a comprehensive performance management programme. Wallem continually appraises its seafarers, carries out skill-gap analyses and tracks performance. We also harness the latest technology to ensure these processes are as seamless and transparent as possible.
