InterManager is delighted to receive a 2019 Safety4Sea – Europort Award for our Enclosed Spaces campaign.
The Safety4Sea – Europort awards focus on workplace safety, training, technology, ship operators, and initiatives that have showcased excellence and innovation within the maritime industry towards a safer and more secure shipping.
InterManager received the Initiative Award for our campaign to raise awareness throughout the shipping industry of the dangers faced by seafarers working in enclosed spaces and to encourage the creation of a safer environment for those working in such spaces. Other short-listed nominees for this category were: Human Rights At Sea, Lloyd’s Register, Sailors’ Society and TT Club.
The awards were presented at a prestigious ceremony which took place during Europort 2019, in Rotterdam. Executive Committee member, Astrid Drent of MF Shipping, received our award on behalf of InterManager.
InterManager Secretary General, Capt Kuba Szymanski, commented: “We are very, very pleased that our campaign to make working in enclosed spaces safer for seafarers has been recognised in this way.”
