Safety at Sea
|Safety@Sea Singapore is an industry-wide effort to increase awareness of safe practices and inculcate a safety-first culture at sea.|
Safety at SeaThe Safety@Sea Singapore campaign was launched on 31 July 2014. Led by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), the campaign is an industry-wide effort to increase awareness of safe practices and inculcate a safety-first culture at sea.
The logo of the Safety@Sea Singapore campaign was launched by Mr Andrew Tan, Chief Executive, MPA together with representatives from the Association of Regional Ferry Operators, Singapore Maritime Employers Federation, Singapore Sailing Federation, Singapore Shipping Association, Singapore Power Boat Association, and PSA Marine. Information kits containing posters, decals and guidebooks were also distributed to members of the harbour craft and shipping community.
"The Safety@Sea Singapore campaign focuses on the human element in marine incidents, we want to safeguard against complacency, raise safety standards, and get everyone in the community to do their part." Mr Andrew Tan, Chief Executive, MPA.
As part of the Safety@Sea Singapore campaign, MPA will work with the maritime community on instilling a strong safety culture, enhancing communication and information sharing, and improving the safe passage of vessels.
In addition to the distribution of information kits to promote a safety-first mindset at sea, MPA will conduct industry-wide briefing sessions to share safety best practices. Passenger ferry safety standards will continue to be reinforced, which includes screening of safety videos onboard ferries and passenger terminals.
MPA will develop a safety reporting and suggestion framework which can facilitate the reporting of good practices and near-miss cases. MPA will also explore the establishment of a National Maritime Safety at Sea Council to spearhead the drive for safety at sea and to ensure the sustainability of the safety efforts.
MPA will continue enforcement efforts to ensure the compliance of rules and regulations, with a greater emphasis on navigational and ship board safety. There will also be increased spot checks on vessels to ensure the observance of safety standards and maintenance of safety equipment.
