This International Women in Engineering Day, we want to shine a light on our hard-working, dedicated surveyors – and celebrate the success stories of three women in our ranks, from the first female engineer to join the Maritime & Coastguard Agency to one of our more recent recruits.
Rules governing the safety of some of the biggest vessels on the sea are set to be put into UK law.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency begins a consultation today on proposals that would put updates made to SOLAS (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974) into UK law.
Surveyors from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency are to carry out unannounced inspections of fishing vessels across the UK.
The inspections are being carried out as part of ongoing work around fishing vessel safety in an industry recognised to be one of the most dangerous in the world.
