During LISW 2019, Dr. Grahaeme Henderson, Vice President, Shipping & Maritime at Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Ltd, highlighted how important is for the industry to continue its efforts on seafarers’ mental health and wellbeing and shared examples of Shell’s work towards a zero-incident future.
While the voting procedure for the 2019 SAFETY4SEA Awards is open, Manit Chander, CEO, HiLo Maritime Risk Management, talks about HiLo data platform – which has been shortlisted for an Initiative Award- and informs about the new add-on that will broaden its knowledge-sharing functionality. Based on HiLo’s success, Mr Chander highlights that sharing data for improving safety does not harm business, it can only help to save ships and lives.
Eradicating maritime casualties remains a top priority for the shipping industry which is struggling to keep fatality and injury rates at low figures. A shipping casualty can bring loss of life, cause irreversible injuries, destroy an ecosystem, lead to major cost claims and damage reputation. The only way to avoid all these is to prevent the accident itself.
During the 2019 SAFETY4SEA London Conference, Mr. Manit Chandler discussed the importance of data sharing between companies in the maritime industry. He noted that sharing data could prevent accidents from being repeated.
