Dispatches No. 254

Shipping one of the safest industries at least in UK in 2014


Last year saw the first time no seafarers died aboard UK flagged vessels over 100 gt, the MAIB reported. Before 2014, UK vessels averaged four deaths per year for the past decade, the MAIB said in its annual report released on 27 July. The MAIB’s records go back 50 years. In addition, for the fifth consecutive year there were no losses of UK merchant vessels above 100 gt recorded. The last UK flagged merchant vessel lost was recorded in 2009.

Members for members:


As a sign of Allmode’s ongoing commitment for InterManager we are happy to introduce a special offer of new rates and discounts to support our organisations’ members and their maritime operations.


Once engaged for vessel security or safety services (Exclusive to InterManager members only):

–  Free Intelligence support

–  Free SSP review

–  A Free Crew-Safe course per vessel engaged for armed security services ( for all crew aboard)

–  20% Discount on Armed Security Teams

–  20% Discount on all Training

–  20% discount on HSE Training and Services


With the recent publication of the IMB’s Piracy and Armed Robbery Against Ships report for Q1-Q2 2015, it has been further confirmed that Southeast Asia is now the global hotspot for piracy and armed robbery against ships. This, coupled with Allmode’s own research paints a picture of a region of increasing violence and lawlessness, with an 18% increase in piracy and robbery attacks since 2014.


Significantly however, these worrying statistics may say just as much about the maritime industry itself than it does about the regional threat. The relatively low proportion of suspicious approaches (or foiled attacks) compared to actual boardings and hijackings tell a story of a lack of awareness, training, vigilance and security management in the region.


Notwithstanding the need for unified and co-ordinated international, state-based efforts to mitigate the risks of piracy and armed robbery, the commercial maritime industry itself must ensure that proactive, professional and compliant safety and security solutions are considered for operations within this area.
