Event description

Description

As the lifeblood of the global economy, thousands of ships around the world are safely plying the oceans and waterways on a 24/7/365 basis. Moreover, as a result of intelligent design, development and utilization of enhanced navigational technologies these vessels are able to operate efficiently and safely in very confined and restricted locations.

There are numerous commonly known and practiced approaches to managing risk and uncertainty. While one of these approaches is to totally eliminate the risk by not partaking in the activity, non-participation does not bode well with maritime transportation given the significant role it plays as an enabler in the growth and development of global society.

Current and emerging technologies are helping shape the industrial internet of things and allowing connected ships the provision of real-time, dynamic utilization of vessel operations and maximization of efficiencies. In light of the exponential advancements of technology and availing of best practices, the prevention of safe vessel operations via the enforcement of moratoriums may not be necessary.

Join the Master Mariners of Canada on Friday, 29 September, 2017 at the BCIT campus in Vancouver, BC to discuss the topic of vessel moratoriums. Confirmed speakers to date include and represent a while range of Canadian industry stakeholders including ship-owners and operators, Transport Canada, pilotage associations, the legal profession, and academia.
