From day one at Teekay, everyone in the organisation is introduced to Teekay’s values. These values form the acronym SPIRIT, which is also the suffix attached to the names of many of our vessels. Flowing from the top of our company right through, we induct all team members to live these values at work.
This Teekay SPIRIT is the critical ingredient that means our teams’ display professionalism, competence and adherence to consistently achieving high standards, in different and dynamic operating environments. Find out more about our values here.
The hashtag #TeekaySPIRIT is also used on our social channels, where our frontline colleagues from around the world share images and stories of their dedication to the values.
Teekay’s commitment to good process contributes significantly to our record on safety and environmental management.
To undertake this serious responsibility, we need and rely on systems and strong governance. In response, using our vessel management and shipping expertise, we developed POLARIS – a comprehensive, integrated marine management system.
Using a software module called DocMap, Teekay’s POLARIS is deployable aboard ship to ensure our crew and our customers obtain the benefits that this wealth of marine management knowledge offers. Teekay manages POLARIS, through DocMap, so it is accessible to our people onboard each vessel, anywhere in the world, 24/7/365, in real time. The system ensures access is to the latest, approved, configured and controlled procedural guidance so our people can achieve marine operational excellence. As the system is fully online, our clients can also have access via a secure log in to validate for themselves how the Teekay governance approach is achieving their requirements.
