Safety

Safety first

Turning the broadly shared drive and desire to improve maritime safety into tangible action that can lead to the application of safety improvements at the working level, where the accidents happen.

Together in Safety

Every year around the world, hundreds of seafarers are killed or seriously injured. The reputations of companies and individuals are damaged, and the costs are high. Improvements in safety performance are possible. It will take leadership, collective responsibility and all across the industry working collaboratively together.

At the Annual Summit in 2018, industry leaders united around a vision of a zero-incident industry and created the “Together in Safety” programme. Since that time, the shipping industry groups and key leaders have been working together to make improvements. At this year’s Annual Summit in Singapore, the first results of “Together in Safety” were presented – focusing on best practices, data sharing and industry leadership – and the next steps towards achieving the vision of a zero-incident industry defined.
