Maritime Safety Week 2022 Announced

Published: Thursday, June 2, 2022 - 10:44

Maritime Safety Week 2022 is due to take place from 4 – 8 July, focusing on the sharing of knowledge and experience to promote marine safety.

In a letter to maritime operatives, Maritime Minister Robert Courts MP called for active engagement with the event, calling it critical to “our ambition of ensuring safety remains the first consideration in what is one of the most difficult and challenging environments to operate.”

Mr Courts also echoed calls from organisations such as Port Skills and Safety to cooperate and exchange information on safety issues.

“Everyone can make a genuine difference in their individual roles, but it is only by working in partnership that we can develop the framework which will support a step change in safety performance and ensure preventable accidents, and their tragic consequences, are eliminated.”

PSS encourages all members to take an active part in marking the week, including attending our Members Conference in London on Tuesday 5 July. Mr Courts has been invited to open the event and it promises to be an excellent forum for port operatives to network and engage with one another.
