A French Forum On Safety At Sea



On Tuesday, May 11th, 2010, at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in La Villette (Paris, France), the second annual Forum on Safety At Sea is being held by the SNSM (Socié Nationale des Sauveteurs en Mer).

The day will be organized in three main workshops:

  • the first one will draw “on the experience of all players involved to establish an efficient approach to safety for new seafarers, be they professional or amateur“;
  • the second workshop will aim at “harnessing new technologies to improve sea safety“, e.g. inflatable life jackets and accessories, weather forecasts, navigation, and radio communications;
  • the third will be attended by French foreign counterparts and will address “Sea rescue: a network of international solidarity involving all seafarers“.
