We are pleased to launch a new poster, which we have developed in conjunction with sponsors the MCA and The Shipowners’ Club, to help crewmembers to identify the signs of fatigue – both in themselves and in others – at sea.
Following the 2017 NWA / Offshore Wind Safety Forum, where the issue of fatigue featured as a major point of concern and discussion, the NWA has spent the past year researching and discussing this challenge with its members and the wider maritime community.
Now, we are pleased to announce that, with the support of the MCA and The Shipowners’ Club, the NWA has created and designed an informative and eye-catching poster, to help crewmembers to identify the signs of fatigue at sea – and to remind them to report any issues of fatigue to shore-based management.
The posters are designed to be displayed on all vessels, and we will be distributing copies at the NWA / Offshore Wind Safety Forum on 6th September. For further information, and to request copies, please email Mark Ranson.
Particular thanks go to NWA Safety Forum Chair & Committee member Kerrie Forster, for his tireless work on this initiative.
The National Workboat Association (NWA) is launching an ‘Understanding Fatigue’ campaign to combat crewmember fatigue on offshore energy support vessels (OESVs)
Following the success of our inaugural NWA / Offshore Wind Safety Forum in Lowestoft last year, we are holding the second combined Safety Forum on 6th September at the ERGO Centre on the Humber. Email Mark Ranson to secure your place.
In this month’s Member Profile, Chris King, Founder and Managing Director of King Marine, talks to us about the workboat training landscape, opportunities and challenges in the sector, and his longterm involvement with the NWA.
