Maritime Safety Award
The Institution believes that the safety of both the seafarer and the maritime environment begins with good design, followed by sound construction and efficient operation. Whilst naval architects and other engineers involved in the design, construction and operation of maritime vessels and structures do not have a patent on such issues, nonetheless their work can make a significant contribution.
The Institution also believes that it has a role to play in recognising achievement of engineers in improving safety at sea and the protection of the maritime environment. Such recognition serves to raise awareness and promote further improvements.
The Maritime Safety Award is presented by the Institution, in association with Lloyd’s Register, to an individual, company or organisation which has made a significant technological contribution to improving maritime safety or the protection of the maritime environment. Such contribution can have been made either by a specific activity or over a period of time. Nominations may be made by any member of the global maritime community, and are judged by a panel of members of the Institution and Lloyd’s Register. The Award will be announced at the Institution’s Annual Dinner.
