LR and HELMEPA Celebrate Milestone for ‘Safety at Sea’ in the Eastern Mediterranean

Lloyds Register (LR) and HELMEPA (Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Authority) have marked the 1,000th incident registered on their Virtual Incident Reporting Platform (VIRP) with a ceremony at the Posidonia 2022 exhibition.

HELMEPA’s VIRP allows shipping companies to anonymously report accidents, incidents and near-misses on board their ships, strengthening maritime safety culture and helping the industry learn from ‘High Potential Incidents’ which can cause danger to life and property.
