Shared knowledge and guiding principles are key to the success of Together in Safety. Tap into safety best practice, tools and resources to start 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.
Around the globe, our members are working hard to find new ways to bring down incident rates year on year.
The more of us who are on board with the Together in Safety mission, the safer our industry will be.
We never forget that behind the statistics are individuals – by working together we can make sure everyone comes home safe every day.
We want to make it easy for our industry’s leaders to put safety at the top of their organisation’s agenda. That starts with understanding the broad issues involved and what is available to support operators. A good place to start is the HSSE website below which includes everything from practical information to targeted learning resources.
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.
There are many resources out there to help maritime businesses improve safety performance and drive down incidents at work.
The HSSE site below gives free access to a range of training materials, including modules on helping your team cope with the challenges they face at work to guidance of providing safety leadership.
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.
A critical part of the journey to an incident-free industry is the embedding of best practice safety behaviours in an organisation’s day-to-day operations and culture.
Our Key Safety Behaviours document offers a foundation that will enable you, whatever your type of shipping business, to share those behaviours with your employees.
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.
