Didsbury were one of the main sponsors at a recent Seminar hosted by the Nautical Institute and Mines Rescue Marine during London International Shipping week, 9 – 13 September 2013.

The event, Entry into Enclosed Spaces on Marine Vessels, was a day of Education, Awareness & Training, headed by several distinguished speakers.

It is always sad to hear of incidents on board ship or in the marine environment when someone dies entering a confined space. Oxygen is not the only thing missing on these occasions. Lack of oxygen is often accompanied by lack of training, lack of safety case procedures or a lack of equipment.

This event highlighted these very important issues and it culminated in a very informative presentation by the Mines Rescue Marine and highly efficient live demonstration by the Mines Rescue Marine officers.
