The next NWA Safety Forum will be held at the Orbis Centre, Lowestoft, on 6th September at 10am.
This offshore wind-focused forum will look to involve all stakeholders in the offshore wind supply chain, with representatives from a selection of our members’ wind clients, shore managers and CTV Masters.
Two items to focus on will be the recently distributed draft of the G+ Good Practice Guide for the "Use of Small Service Vessels", as mentioned earlier in this edition, and also the proposed risk assessment system being proposed for the IMCA step-to-work sub-group for CTV/turbine access.

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. Kerrie gives us an insight into recent news at Acta, his view on the state of the market, and a perspective on discussions at the Offshore Wind Safety Forum.
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. The forum provided a round table discussion for crew transfer vessel operators and managers, and wind farm operators, to address common issues challenges in the safe operation of offshore wind Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs).
After two weeks of waiting for the BG Verkehr to respond to Roger Towner’s last proposal, we have now had two unwelcome developments.
