Maritime Safety, Health and Environment – from Theory to Practice

It seems there is a need for investigating the relation between what seems to work on paper and what can actually be done in practice.

For instance, is there a direct relation between new safety standards and actual number of accidents? Have the maritime industry created a culture where the things done on paper are consistent with the things done in the practical reality?

In the transition from theory to practice, there is one central element which is crucial to success or failure in the safety, health and environmental work: The human factor.

On this year’s conference, we will debate and problematize the human role in the daily running. We will discuss issues such as whether the human being is the key to safety or the cause of accidents, and how we organise the staff to avoid risks and dangers as much as possible.
MSSM 2015 will be held on the 26th- 28th of August, 2015.

About 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.
