This is the 6th conference of the design for safety series. In 1999, the 1st International Conference on Design for Safety was held in Glasgow, UK, as a WEGEMT Euro- Conference with the sponsorship of the European Commission. Responding to the expectations of the world maritime safety community, DfS conferences are held every three years, at changing venues in Asia, the US and Europe. This year, the DfS conference also includes the 5th Workshop on Risk-Based Approaches in the Marine Industries at a single event. The conference is organized by DNV GL.
The concept of design for safety (DfS) has been advocated by the IMO and European countries and continues to gain momentum. A key issue is to address ship safety cost-effectively. Here, safety is not treated as a design constraint and a limiting factor of ship profitability, but as a design objective that aims to enhance the value of the designed ship in the competitive safety-conscious market.
Promoting the design-for-safety theme, the conference aims to bring together administrative organizations, classification societies, universities, research institutes, ship design offices, shipbuilding and shipping industries, the oil and gas industry and other sectors with knowledge-intensive, safety-critical products from all over the world to exchange the latest information and innovative ideas.
