Safe Access & Efficient Operations Seminar

10 September 2019, 1415 – 1700.


Join us for a Safe Access & Efficient Operations joint industry seminar as part of LISW run by the British Tugowners Association, British Ports Association and Workboat Association.

This important operational safety seminar will examine the existing and ongoing issue of safe access for service vessels in ports, the difficulties and constraints, the requirements, possible solutions and what best practice looks like.

Through working together as the maritime industry to find solutions, bringing stakeholders together is crucial to finding means to increase safety, reduce risk, protect lives and improve efficiency of operations.

Hearing from a range of stakeholders and speakers, this seminar presents a frank assessment of where we are and how we can do better.
