We are delighted to be sponsoring the Maritime UK Awards for the second year running. This year the awards ceremony set to be held In Plymouth, with an autumn date still to be announced.
The UK Ship Register has maintained its US QUALSHIP 21 status (Quality Shipping for the 21st Century). One of the world’s top standards, the US Coast Guard awards it to flag administrations and vessel owners that consistently demonstrate a commitment to quality and safety.
Working closely with the maritime industry, including the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the MCA has played a key role in both developing and supporting a full mission bridge simulator. It gives cadets the chance to get a proper understanding of what real life is like onboard the bridge of a vessel.
The campaign, led by The Fishing Industry Safety Group (FISG), highlights a day at sea and the simple steps a skipper and his crew take every day to ensure they return home safely to their loved ones. The campaign comes as many fishing crews across the UK are returning to sea following weeks of lockdown and challenging market conditions to sell their catch.
The importance of mental health and wellbeing is something that the MCA has worked hard with industry to promote and support.
‘Wellbeing at Sea: A Guide for Organisations’ and ‘Wellbeing at Sea: A Pocket Guide for Seafarers’ have been created by the MCA in consultation with unions, ship owners and maritime charities; and explore a range of mental, emotional and physical issues crew might experience on a day-to-day basis on-board vessels.
The UK Ship Register (UKSR) - part of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) is one of the best performing flags in the major Port State Control regimes. It has a reputation for maintaining the highest international standards.
