UK P&I Club wins Excellence in Safety and Training award at the Lloyd's List Europe Awards

Stuart Edmonston and Hugo Wynn-Williams

In his opening speech, Richard Meade, managing editor of Lloyd's List said 'Each year at these events I stand before you and explain that the Lloyd's List Awards are more necessary than ever, precisely because they reward successful endeavour in the face of seemingly intractable problems. But I also think that this collective view of excellence and endeavour has a more practical purpose. Sharing ideas is not just a good idea - it's a question of survival.'

Recipients are chosen from entries taken from around the European region and adjudicated by a distinguished judging panel which this year included:  Robert Ashdown, Secretary-General, International Association of Classification Societies; Tom Boardley, Secretary General, Cruise Lines International Association; Lars Green, CEO, Green Consulting Group; Richard Greiner, Partner/Shipping & Transport, BDO LLP; John Lloyd, Chief Executive Officer, The Nautical Institute; Michael Parker, Chairman, Global Shipping, Logistics & Offshore, Citi; Karen Purnell, Managing Director, ITOPF; Bob Sanguinetti, Chief Executive Officer, UK Chamber of Shipping; Katharina Stanzel, Managing Director, Intertanko; Patrick Verhoeven, Managing Director, Policy and Strategy, IAPH; Chris Welsh MBE, Member of the Lloyd's List Editorial Board.

The judges joined a long queue of shipmanagers and trainers in applauding the effective simplicity of the UK Club's 'Lessons Learnt' videos which shared real case studies with a view to preventing similar incidents from happening again. The panel welcomed the accessible tone of the animated content which has allowed these important messages to go viral throughout the global fleet in a way that is far more effective than any written notice.

The awards were attended by 400 industry professionals and were hosted by Hugh Dennis.

The awards are managed by Lloyd's List - leading maritime commerce since 1734.  - Lloyd's List provides information, analysis and knowledge for business decision makers in a changing and increasingly complex shipping environment.
