The Seminar is addressed to Merchant Marine Officers and executives of HELMEPA and CYMEPA Member managing companies. It covers issues such as dealing with human-related factors regarding maritime safety, understanding the cost of accidents on human / economic / environmental terms, safe mooring operations, ‘lessons learned’ from maritime accident investigation and safe work planning on the ship.

12 two-day seminars are held at the DNV-GL certified “HELMEPA Maritime Training Center for Pollution Prevention, Safety at sea and Environmental Awareness” in Athens and 4 one-day seminars in Cyprus, in collaboration with CYMEPA.

The dates and registration process for the “Safety First” Seminars are announced on the HELMEPA website and the HELMEPA Maritime Facebook page.
