HMS conceptualized the unique concept of Personnel Management, as against that of Manning Services, while defining our mission and policy. In HMS we appreciate the fact that it is the seafarer on board the vessel, who is the operator and protector of the Ship Owner’s asset. It is imperative that this is strengthened and amalgamated into the mindset of all our seafarers. HMS achieves this through the implementation and follow-up of the company’s Quality and Safety Management Culture. HMS is also an ISO 9001:2008 Certified company.
