London Branch Conference 2018 - The future of maritime professionals

20 - 21 April 2018
Novotel, Victoria Street BS1 6HY BRISTOL UK

Regulations, enforcement of Conventions, technology, connectivity, social isolation and mental health all have an effect on today’s seafarer. This seminar will focus on these topics and how they affect the future of maritime professionals.
We will also discuss:
• SMS a straitjacket intended to be followed in every circumstance? And what is the relationship of ISM/SMS with other regulatory/Convention inspection regimes? Is there regulatory overload for the seafarer?
• The impact and training requirements for developments in shipboard technology - how is increasing automation giving seafarers less control? How will this affect them?
• The mental health of seafarers – what help is available? Should ships’ officers be trained in recognizing mental health issues? What can they do in practice?
• What is the importance of seafarers being connected to their families via the internet/social media?
