BIMCO has invited Donal Burke, expert in safety in enclosed spaces, to speak at this webinar hosted by Ashok Srinivasan, Manager, Maritime Safety and Security, BIMCO.

Enclosed space incidents have been a major cause of fatalities on board ships. While we are aware of the risks involved in enclosed space to a large extent, there are still some aspects that need our better understanding. 

One such aspect is the rate at which oxygen depletes in enclosed spaces. While it is largely acknowledged that oxygen depletes in enclosed spaces , it’s rate of depletion may not be well understood. 

This BIMCO webinar will mainly focus on this aspect of enclosed spaces, while also giving an introduction into BIMCO’s work on this topic. 

Hosted by Ashok Srinivasan, Manager in Maritime Safety and Security, BIMCO’s guest speaker, Dr. Donal Burke, who has conducted extensive studies on oxygen depletion in enclosed spaces, will inform the audiences about his work and the dangers present in enclosed spaces

BIMCO hopes that this will enable the stakeholders such as shipowners, ship designers, HSSE managers, as well ship staff to see the issue in new light and hopefully assist in putting better safeguards in place. 

This webinar will last around 45 minutes and will be followed by 15 minutes (Q &A) session. It will be conducted on 12 October at 07:00 UTC.
