Lessons, Insights and Trends

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) will be holding its 5th run of the annual Safety@Sea Week from 18 to 22 June 2018. The Safety@Sea Week is one of MPA’s key events where we actively engage the local and international maritime community to raise awareness and exchange views on maritime safety. The main objectives of the International Safety@Sea Week are to instil a safety-first culture and mind-set, enhance communication and information sharing, and to improve the safe passage of vessels. Key events held during the International Safety@Sea Week 2018 are a two-day international conference, plenary sessions, thematic workshops, industry visits, a networking reception and a safety awards presentation.
