Who we are

Health and Safety

From our 'safety first' focus to our underlying corporate values and environmental initiatives, we set high standards for ourselves and our partners across all areas of our business.

Safety First

We focus relentlessly on ensuring the safety of our operations, employees and contractors across our global organisation. Our unwavering commitment to safety supported through operational excellence has delivered over more than 3 years of LTI-free operations.

Safety Management

Our CEO has overall responsibility for our safety performance and policies, whilst the Group Head of QHSSE has the responsibility and authority to monitor compliance and set objectives to ensure policies and procedures are adhered to.

Additionally, our fleet management teams continue to work beyond our robust Safety Management System (SMS). They focus on exceeding client expectations and industry standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, as well as those set by the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF). UMC also maintains a valid certification issued by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), to ensure all business locations are constantly monitored and verified against the UMC integrated management system.

Safety Stewardship

UMC Engineering is an active member of the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA), an international trade association promoting safety within the offshore, marine and underwater engineering industries.




UMC takes great pride in being a responsible corporate citizen and positively influencing the communities in which we operate. We create shared values for communities in our host countries through employing locally, developing in-country supply-chains and supporting the long-term community development.


The long-term success and growth of UMC relies upon our continued ability to improve the quality of services and products we deliver, whilst fulfilling effective duties of care to operational safety, human health and environmental well-being. This includes our commitment to environmental performance and prevention of pollution, including targeting “Zero Spills” in all operations.
