United Tugs Inc


In the marine towing industry, a spotlight on the evening news is rarely a good thing.

When a towing company like United Tugs is doing its job well and safely, there is nothing to report. Only when mess-ups occur do news crews descend. And, United Tugs is proud to say weíre never in the news.

Our success, in large part, is because of our commitment to the safety of our personnel, vessels and customer assets. We believe almost all incidents, accidents and injuries can be prevented and we go above and beyond to make this a reality on the water each day. This commitment to safe work extends from management down to the decks, and all of United Tugs employees are held accountable in this regard.

One of the easiest ways to ensure a safe working environment is to provide the most thorough and up-to-date training to each of our employees. Almost all of the training programs in which our employees participate reiterate knowledge of safe operating procedures.

At United Tugs, safety isnít just a business philosophy; itís a personal commitment to those that we love to come home in one piece at the end of a job. Itís a commitment between our employees to protect each other. Itís a commitment to our customers too.
