A busy day lies ahead for members of the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) on 29 May when the Association holds its Asia-Pacific Section meeting in Perth, Australia.
The open meeting for IMCA members, corresponding members and guests follows a closed early morning voting member meeting. From 10am, the open meeting will consider competition law policy; provide a worldwide update on all IMCA divisions – Competence and Training; Safety, Environment and Legislation (SEL); Diving; Marine; Offshore Survey; and Remote Systems & ROV; and then encompass an international regulatory update; and discuss recent safety-related incidents before the first of a series of presentations takes place.
“We certainly have a packed and highly relevant programme,” says Jane Bugler, IMCA’s Technical Director, who will be at the meeting. “Before lunch we have a presentation by Steve Dunstan of AMMA on ‘Industrial relations offshore’. Then after lunch ‘Offshore cranes’ by Enermech; ‘Noise management offshore’ by Ian Parry of Aurora Environmental; and ‘IMCA diving supervisor exam system’ by consultant, John Yorke. These will be followed by workshops including one on ‘Safety leadership’."
