Cutting Edge Marine Safety and Burning Issues

Monday, 11th February 2019

3 One Day Workshops - Southampton UK - 2 3 4 April 2019

As the digital age rapidly arrives all around us - it (or IT) may have overlooked that safety at sea is still all about people. To meet the changing requirements of modern fleets, smart organisations and specialist equipment manufacturers now need to work together to blend traditional safety methods with innovation.

A unique programme of 3 specialist safety days for the sub IMO / sub 24 metre professional sector is being held back-to-back at the Grand Harbour Hotel overlooking the port of Southampton this April. The fast moving programme brings together an international group of 25 experts armed with the latest knowledge to identify problems that affect the maritime sector worldwide - and highlight potential solutions!

Workshop Lead, John Haynes said, ‘Each Workshop focusses on a specific topic, so that busy people can attend for a single day. In recent years the NEXT GEN programme has gained a reputation for highlighting burning issues and emerging opportunities. The unique insight gained from dynamic panel sessions is leading to improvements for in-service systems and procurement of next generation vessels.’

NEXT GEN Man Overboard Prevention & Recovery on 2 April 2019is relevant to all people working on or near to water. Expert presenters highlight lessons learned and give viable methods to reduce loss of life at sea, in harbours, docks and marinas. Sponsors include Ocean Safety, Exposure OLAS.
