Safety isn’t a talking point, it’s the way we do business.

There is nothing that matters to us more than health and safety of our Interlake family members. It is at the forefront of everything we do, and how we conduct ourselves every day from stem to stern and lake to shore.

Our employees lead by example and are empowered to promote sound safety practices among fellow shipmates and co-workers. Spearheaded by our safety department, we support a comprehensive range of training, policies and programs geared to the maritime industry.


We all work safe for the same universal goal: so we can return home to our families at the end of the day or after a long stint on the boat.
