Maritime Safety Award

The Maritime Safety Award is presented by RINA, in association with Lloyd’s Register, to an individual, company or organisation that has made a significant technological contribution to improving maritime safety or the protection of the maritime environment.

The award recognises that the safety of both the seafarer and the maritime environment begins with good design, followed by sound construction and efficient operation.

About the award

While naval architects and other engineers involved in the design, construction and operation of maritime vessels and structures do not have a patent on such issues, nonetheless their work can make a significant contribution.  

RINA also believes that it has a role to play in recognising the achievements of engineers in improving safety at sea and the protection of the maritime environment. Such recognition serves to raise awareness and promote further improvements.
