News |

Published: Apr 26, 2024

Due to a number of requests from members, the deadline to submit entries to the inaugural PSS awards has been extended by one month.

The awards are designed to recognise achievements in improving safety and skills in the sector and furthering the organisation’s commitment to sharing best practice, and the top three entries will present to the members’ conference on 02 July. The deadline for submission will now be Friday 24 May 2024 to allow members to submit entries in more than one category.

The awards are open to all members and all are encouraged submit entries for all three categories. The top three entries in each category will have the opportunity to present their project to the PSS Members’ Conference, taking place in London during Maritime Safety Week 2024 and the winners will be voted on by their peers.

The categories are:

Best Safety Moment

This award will be presented to the PSS member who has made a significant and positive difference to safety within their port or the wider port sector. This award recognises projects and initiatives which engage port workers and deliver a positive message about the importance of all aspects of port health, safety, and wellbeing. This could be via a port safety campaign, awareness event or individual safety initiative.

Best Skills Initiative

This award will be presented to the PSS member who has demonstrated dedication to skills development, career pathways and workforce empowerment. The award will celebrate members who design, implement, or support innovative skills programs, which promote professional growth, port careers, and contribute to developing future talent in the maritime industry.

Best Members’ Collaboration

This award will be presented to two member organisations that embody PSS’s commitment to collaboration by working together to achieve a step-change in safety or skills outcomes. Only one member needs to make the submission and both members will then be invited to make a joint presentation on their collaboration. PSS particularly invites members working in the innovation space to submit entries on working with ports on new technology.

Submissions can be made by downloading the application form below and submitting it to before Friday 24 May 2024. The three selected entries in each category will be notified at least one month’ before the conference with details of their presentation slot at the members’ conference.
