Last week, International Seafarers' Welfare & Assistance Network (ISWAN) launched the 2018 International Seafarers’ Welfare Awards.
Also this year, Wrist Ship Supply sponsors The Seafarers Centre of the Year award and Garrets International again sponsors The Shipping Company of the Year award.
Wrist is proud again to have CEO, Robert Kledal invited to join the prestigious judge panel, expressing his satisfaction with ISWAN’s initiatives: “We are happy to continue supporting ISWAN and showing our recognition of the hard work done to provide high quality welfare services for visiting seafarers.”
This will be the 7th ISWAN awards event since 2010. The awards aim to raise the profile of seafarers’ welfare across the maritime industry and to encourage companies to raise their standards by showcasing best practice from shipping companies, ports, seafarers’ centres and welfare workers.
Seafarers are invited to nominate candidates online across four categories by the 1st December 2017 deadline.
The awards ceremony will go ahead in April 2018 during the Third Meeting of the Special Tripartite Committee of the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006).
