NWA to host Towage Safety Forum at Seawork

Friday 19th May 2017

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.

These will include:

  • Basic Tug Training - NWA Member and Towage Assessor, Chris King
  • Progress of the MCA Voluntary Towage Endorsement Scheme - Mark Ranson
  • NWA Towage Good Practice Guide - still evolving - Mark Meade 

We hope to see you there!
