As a member of Together in Safety, a coalition of more than 20 leading shipping organisations focused on improving safety in the sector, OCIMF are pleased to share the Shipping Safety Report, published by Together in Safety this week. The report highlights how the shipping industry can unite to further improve safety and includes case studies and examples of best practice, which demonstrate the value and benefits of shared safety learnings and resources.

This report comes at a critical time, as with several important topics such as the COVID-19 pandemic and decarbonisation stretching the focus within the shipping industry, it remains vital that the industry does not lose sight of the need for continued strong leadership on safety. The shipping industry has made significant steps forward in improving its safety performance, but still, every year, many seafarers suffer fatal accidents or are injured whilst working on ships.

We encourage all our members and partners to download the report from and to check out the tools and resources included on the website.

Together in Safety is unique in being made up of the CEOs and senior leaders of a wide range of organisations, including industry associations, government bodies, ship owners, classification societies and insurers. The vision and direction of the group was co-created by the members, who engage regularly to identify new safety issues and collectively work to agree actions.

The members of Together in Safety are AP Moller – Maersk AS, Australian Maritime Safety Authority, BIMCO, Carnival Corporation & plc, Cruise Lines International Association, Danish Maritime Authority, Euronav, Gaslog, Global Maritime Forum, INTERCARGO, Interferry, International Chamber of Shipping, INTERTANKO, Lloyds Register, MSC Group, OCIMF, Thomas Miller, Shell Shipping & Maritime, UK P&I Club, and V.Group.
