Maritime safety week: 03 - 07 July 2023

Port Skills and Safety (PSS) has welcomed the start of Maritime Safety Week 2023, a week of activity dedicated to promoting a safe maritime industry.

One of the highlights of the week is set to be the PSS members’ conference, due to be opened by Baroness Vere on the second day of Maritime Safety Week. The conference will see over 170 representatives from the membership and wider maritime community, come together to discuss Improving Standards Through Collaboration.

Maritime Safety Week serves as a crucial platform to address challenges, share knowledge, and foster collaboration among PSS members, industry stakeholders, and government bodies. As well as the PSS conference, the week-long initiative will encompass various activities and website articles highlighting the key port safety concerns and measures that can be undertaken to mitigate risks.

Across the week PSS will highlight the key accident statistics from the 2022 review, announce the results of the recent Port Happiness survey and present articles on key safety concerns for the sector.

To keep updated with activities, follow the PSS socials on Twitter and LinkedIn and the hashtags #maritimesafetyweek, #MSW and #maritimesafetymatters throughout and beyond the week.
