IMO is to host a wide-ranging symposium on ship safety in the future.
This session will examine recent trends in ship design and their likely impact on ship safety in the decades to come, and discuss how future risks should be assessed.
This session will look at how shipping responds to the needs of society, industry and global trade and examine possible ways forward in the future.
This session will look at the economic, environmental and consumer forces impacting maritime safety and how such forces will drive future ship design and operations.
This session will discuss the availability and need for data collection and analysis methodologies to provide the sound scientific basis for continuous improvement in the years to come.
This session will seek to identify the best way of encouraging a safety culture beyond mere compliance with statutory requirements based on both theoretical and practical examples.
This session will look at whether the current international safety regulatory framework will effectively respond to the future challenges discussed throughout the Symposium and identify the actions needed to meet those challenges successfully.
