DSM Fire Safety Meet will take place on Donsö during DSM2022 on June 14. A day including both theoretical and practical knowledge on how to prevent and respond to onboard fire in new fuels, but also in regulations, insurance and the newest research in the area. The day is directed to both onboard personal and those interested in fire safety. Since the crew onboard is of outmost importance to prevent fire, and is the responsible fire brigade onboard, DSM and Nordkompass would like to reach out with a special welcome to those of you working at sea to participate, at Donsö or via the live streaming.
The ongoing work towards a climate neutral transport sector means that alternative fuels, new energy sources and different technologies are developed, evaluated and implemented. The risk profiles therefore change for vessels, the cargo (i.e. trucks, cars) as well as for the whole system of logistics and requires knowledge on how to manage fire safety. During DSM and the Fire Safety Meet you will get the best possible update regarding fire safety by experts in different areas that will participate.
The morning is a seminar session, among the speakers are Jonas Bjelfvenstam Director General for the Swedish Transport Agency, Sifis Papageorgiou, Project Officer of EMSA with over 25 years of experience, Julia Burgén, researcher and expert at human factors in fire safety, RISE and Ola Willstrand battery expert of RISE.
