Maritime Safety Week 2021

7 Jul 2021

The Department for Transport is delighted to announce that annual Maritime Safety Week is taking place from 5 to 9 July 2021.

 

This year’s Maritime Safety Week will be an opportunity for all key organisations – including HM Coastguard, charities and port authorities – to share best safety practices and knowledge, and challenge each other to enhance their already rigorous standards.

 

To mark the beginning of the fourth annual Maritime Safety Week, Maritime Minister Robert Courts will visit the Port of London Authority (PLA) to see first-hand its maritime pilot training space and meet some of the pilots trained to board commercial vessels to ensure safe passage.

 

The PLA manages 95 miles of the Thames and is the UK’s busiest waterway.
