CSSF grows by two further members and prepares for the next meeting in Asia

Piraeus, Greece based shipping company Danaos Shipping Co. Ltd. joined the Container Ship Safety Forum (CSSF) in July 2017 and Nav-Tech B.V., the newly formed in-house ship management entity of Samskip from Rotterdam, Netherlands, has been welcomed in the forum as the latest member this month.

The CSSF is a global business-to-business network aiming to improve safety performance and management practices in the container shipping industry. To achieve this, CSSF members collaborate through measurement, reporting and benchmarking as well as sharing best practices and engaging with industry stakeholders. All 18-member companies confirmed their attendance at the next CSSF members meeting which is scheduled to take place in Hong Kong on 6 -7th November 2017. The meeting is also open for representatives from non-member ship management companies to participate as observers.

The meeting agenda will focus on personal accidents in the cargo area on board of container ships and on hand and finger injuries. Both topics relate to the conclusions of the latest CSSF Performance Report. The yearly report is based on Health, Safety and Environmental KPI-data provided by members and is inter alia used to identify safety hotspots on container ships.
