3 One Day Workshops - Southampton UK April 2-4, 2019

As the digital age rapidly arrives all around us, it (or IT) may have overlooked that safety at sea is still all about people. To meet the changing requirements of modern fleets, smart organizations and specialist equipment manufacturers now need to work together to blend traditional safety methods with innovation.

A unique program of three specialist safety days for the sub IMO / sub 80 feet professional sector is being held back-to-back at the Grand Harbor overlooking the port of Southampton UK this April. The fast moving program brings together an international group of 25 experts armed with the latest knowledge to identify problems that affect the maritime sector worldwide - and highlight potential solutions.

Workshop Lead, John Haynes said, ‘Each Workshop focuses on a specific topic, so that busy people can attend for a single day. In recent years the NEXT GEN program has gained a reputation for highlighting burning issues and emerging opportunities. Unique insights gained from dynamic panel sessions are helping designers and the marine industry to make strategic product development decisions. This interaction is leading to improvements for in-service systems and procurement of next generation vessels.’

NEXT GEN Man Overboard Prevention & Recovery on April 2, 2019 is relevant to all people working on or near to water. Experts highlight lessons learned from incidents and give viable methods to reduce loss of life at sea, in harbors, docks and marinas. Sponsors include Ocean Safety, Exposure OLAS. Panel discussions include, When can Electronics or Laser Flares be used versus Pyrotechnics?

NEXT GEN Safety Systems & Equipment on April 3, 2019 delves into future requirements along with the challenge of integrating innovative systems into the maritime workplace to improve safety, communication and situational awareness. Sponsors include Seakeeper, Dyena, David Clark, Sea Robotics. Panel discussions include, Are Digital Navigation Systems Becoming More or Less Complicated?

NEXT GEN Shock Mitigation Solutions on April 4, 2019 focuses on managing the risk of operating planing craft in waves. Extreme applications have driven rapid development and cost effective solutions are now becoming available for lower speed vessels. Sponsors include Skydex Technologies, Shockwave, Scot Seats, Shoxs. Panel discussions include, What quick and simple methods Reduce Risk of Injury on Fast Craft?

NEXT GEN Workshops are relevant to operators of workboats, pilot boats, patrol, search & rescue, survey, wind farm support, superyacht tenders, training and charter vessels. Attendees include Royal Navy, Ministry of Defense, Border Force, HM Coastguard and the RNLI. International attendees include professional and military organisations, boat builders, equipment manufacturers and service providers.

Supporters of the event include British Marine, UK Maritime Pilots, University of Southampton and Southampton Solent University.
