 The “DSS"  brand  has  strengthened  beyond  its  traditional  Marine  Safety  core  since inception  in  1998,  through  development  in  the  Aviation  Safety,  Environmental  Protection and Asset Protection industries. Changing our name to DSS Protection better positions us as Protectors of Lives & the Environment in each of the sectors and industries we serve, allowing key stakeholders a better understanding of who we are and all that we do.
