The inaugural SAFTY4SEA Conference in Hamburg successfully concluded on Wednesday 7th of November, at Empire Riverside Hotel, Hamburg, attracting 160 delegates from a total of 88 organizations.
Discussions on how the industry can change mindset and embrace Safety II concept to focus on people rather than on systems took place at this year’s event. Namely, the last two panels centred around safety aspects describing why until today shipping has adopted Safety I concept, with panellists suggesting ways to move forward. As explained, there is need for moving from what goes wrong to what goes right, highlighting that safety management should not only be reactive, but proactive as well. Delegates at the 2018 SAFETY4SEA Conference also heard about challenges ahead for sustainable shipping, lessons learned from maritime accidents and ways to minimize risks while the focus was once again shed to human element and on ways to improve crew welfare and enhance human performance
In 2018, the first SAFETY4SEA Conference was organized in Cyprus, making the start for establishing a global presence for the events. Now, SAFETY4SEA conferences take place in significant shipping hubs around the world, gathering high level global speakers; apart from Greece and Cyprus, the first events in Hamburg, Singapore and London are on the agenda for this winter.
