Welcome to Together in Safety, a non-regulatory industry consortium connecting the maritime sector with the common purpose of working together to improve safety performance.

Shipping is one of the most hazardous industries in the world. Together in Safety provides the opportunity to dramatically improve the safety performance across every shipping sector. The programmes are proven and easily accessible, and free to use. 

I would ask every shipping company, every owner and every manager, to be part of Together in Safety. As leaders of the global shipping industry, we have the power to make the changes, and ensure that every seafarer goes home safely to their families and children.

Human performance & wellbeing


Research shows that safe and well-motivated teams are happier and more productive – and we all have a role to play in making sure incidents are reduced and everyone feels that they are being looked after at work.

The Maritime wellbeing website below has a wealth of information on how leaders and individual team members can take steps to improve physical and mental wellbeing.

Data utilisation


The more our industry collaborates, the greater our chances of achieving our vision of an incident free industry. Incident and near miss data is critical to our ability to learn, and sharing data across our industry is how we will truly make a difference.

We have worked together with HiLo Risk Management to support development of a free to use, anonymous data platform.

Golden safety rules

The 9 Golden Safety Rules focus on the work areas known to have a significant impact on safety in the maritime industry – from fall prevention and spotting hazards to hotwork and navigation.

Taking each area in turn, the rules highlight the key issues involved and give operators a series of Dos and Don’ts that can be shared with employees to promote safer working practices.
