Safety at Sea - 4th MSC Berlin

06.11.2018

Safe measures onboard merchant ships are the root cause for all operational considerations in international shipping. Such safety culture is based on a corresponding commitment of the officers on board and the executive management in the shipping companies ashore. This also includes the development and implementation of a suitable concept for maritime safety, marine environment protection and employment and living conditions on board.

Although the safety standards within the international merchant shipping  increased for years, the issue is more relevant than ever. Due to the tough economic development in the recent years, the economic distress of the industry is one of the major risk factors: as bankruptcies are increasing and in cause of high debts and declining yields, shipping companies have tried to reduce the costs of maintenance, training and crew.

Considering these aspects, this years maritime safety conference hosted by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure offered industry and government representatives an insight view about the current focus of German activities for safe navigation on the oceans under the title "Safe equipment, management, training and rescue equipment".
