Reminder: The UK Club's 150th Safety competition
The UK Club's 150th Safety competition has been running for nearly a month, and there have been some excellent entries so far, but the Club is keen to get as many entries as possible before stage 1 closes on 30th November 2018.
As a reminder, the competition is open to 18-30 year olds and the competition is not restricted to UK P&I Club Members alone but we hope many of the Club's Members will encourage their staff to take part.
Teams of up to four or individuals are invited to propose an improvement to any element of safety at sea from developments in seafarer wellbeing through to a tangible invention to improve upon physical safety or navigation.
There is a dedicated microsite for the competition at: https://150competition.ukpandi.com/
