Get2gether: Presentation on man-made accidents
On the night before the MSSM 2014 conference, we will warm up with a Get2gether event, where historian, author, and speaker Rasmus Dahlberg will visit and talk about man-made accidents through the ages. "The human factor" is the name of Rasmus' presentation on man-made accidents througout history, which provides a valuable insight in the significance of human errors. What good is well functioning technology, if the human fails? On the basis of numerous examples from the 20th century a thought provoking systemic approach to understanding man-made accidents and disasters is presented.
The maritime conference MSSM
MSSM is an annual conference where maritime companies, authorities and organisations meet to gain new knowledge on safety, health and the environment. At MSSM the Blue Denmark can experience short lectures, workshops and presentations.
The aim of the conference is to bring together everyone in the Danish shipping industry - ship owners, regulatory authorities, researchers, companies and maritime training schools – engaged in occupational health and safety, well-being, collaboration, leadership and the environment, in the office ashore and at sea.
The conference is a good opportunity to meet colleagues across organizations and expand your network in the industry. You can find plenty of inspiration, also at the conference trade exhibition. This is the place for The Blue Denmark to show some of the results to ensure that the industry can maintain its high safety and a good working environment in the future. At MSSM a number of suppliers and manufacturers exhibit maritime equipment and products for the seafarers. At the exhibition there will be time to get a good chat and get information about equipment and products.
Just as MSSM was part of a strategy of Denmark being the leading shipping nation in Europe, we now regard MSSM as part of the Danish government's growth plan for the Danish maritime industry, in which MSSM’s objectives coincide with the overall strategy and trends in the industry.
