Brave to be Safe is shortlisted for a Safety at Sea Award 2017
MacGregor Global Lifecycle Support’s Brave to Be Safe program is one of the finalists in competing about the Best Crew Development and Training programme.
The shortlist was presented at Nor-Shipping 2017 on 1 of June. The winner of the award will be published on 12 September, during London International Shipping Week 2017. We are proud to say that Brave to be Safe is developed in cooperation with Blaa Mediamentor.
There is a global shortage of seafarers and attracting and retaining the best talent is a challenge across shipping. This category recognises the standout programmes that develop seafarer skills and ensure that crew comply with industry best practice and global regulation. The winning entry in this category will be a training programme or event that can be demonstrated to have improved safe working practices or attitudes as a result of its implementation, either onshore or aboard ship. Potential entrants include shipowners, ship managers, ship operators as well as internal or external training providers.
The judges will look at criteria including the following:
- Impacts on recruitment and retention
- Improved work practices/processes that may have resulted
- Cost efficiency or other efficiency improvements
- Environmental effects/advantages
