On June 15th, the NWA will be hosting a forum entitled Towage: Reducing the Risks – Raising the Standards in the Upper Deck Conference Room, from 10:30 – 13:30. Members are strongly encouraged to join – but all are welcome.
With input from the MAIB and Shipowners P&I Club specialists, we’ll consider some of the more high-profile tug incidents in recent years. We will then look at some of the recent initiatives from the NWA to raise the standard of safety within the towage sector.

In the first of a series of regular ‘member profiles’, we talk to Kerrie Forster of Acta Marine, Chairman of the NWA Safety Forum and a Member of the Committee.

The National Workboat Association (NWA) would like to thank everyone who attended our first Offshore Wind-specific Safety Forum on 6th September, at the Orbis Centre, Lowestoft.

After two weeks of waiting for the BG Verkehr to respond to Roger Towner’s last proposal, we have now had two unwelcome developments.
