The award will be presented by Heike Deggim, Director of the Maritime Safety Division at the IMO, during ICHCA’s International Official Reception & Awards Ceremony, hosted by Malta Freeport Terminals on Tuesday 12 November at the Hilton Hotel, Malta.
Alongside the award, the John Strang A. O. Memorial Award will also be presented. Entry deadline is 31 August, 2019. Past winners of the Safety Award are APM Terminals and Hapag-Lloyd. Details of the entry process and the judging criteria can be found here.
In announcing the opening of the Award entry process for 2019, TT Club Risk Management Director Peregrine Storrs-Fox said: “TT Club has always emphasised the critical nature of loss prevention in its role as a primary supplier of liability and property insurance to those operating in the freight supply chain industry. As such, we remain dedicated to encouraging safety awareness and are delighted to maintain our support of this joint initiative with ICHCA.
"This award aims to tease out and profile equipment, systems or processes that result in improvements in safety – effectively helping to ensure that workers can return home night by night. We look forward to examining the wealth of safety innovation that will once more be encouraged by this award.”
