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

Launched in 2019 from the vision of major maritime leaders to create a zero-incident industry, Together in Safety works within guiding principles to freely exchange safety information, learn from each other and promote best practices through the use of a common language that is clear and easy to understand.

Non-mandatory, non-regulatory and non-penalising, through Together in Safety we can implement the very best initiatives and makes sure our seafarers return home safe to their loved ones.

What is Together in Safety?

Set up in January 2019, Together in Safety is a non-regulatory industry consortium backed by more than 20 leading players in the maritime industry.

Our Together in Safety community is growing all the time. We still have lots to do, but we are hugely encouraged by the fact that we are all pulling in the same direction to make our industry safer.

Join in by following our guiding principles:

Lead by example

help make safety a no.1 priority in your organisation

Be accountable

create a safety culture that looks to reduce accidents rather than lay blame


share information freely to help us all drive up safety standards

Start by making a difference today

Together in Safety is an initiative that brings together leading maritime organisations with the shared goal of creating a safer industry for our people, our partners and the public.

We’ve gathered some testimonials from around the maritime sector to show the difference that Together in safety is already making.

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.
