IASST Chairman Delivers Presentation to Delegates of the European Parliament
Jul 2022

On Tuesday, the 12th of July, the Chairman of the International Association for Safety and Survival Training (IASST) Henk Spanjer delivered a presentation to delegates of the European Parliament.

The request to deliver the presentation came from a group who was involved in an EU project (Erasmus +) and aimed to develop a safety related virtual reality program for the fishing industry.

Henk could deliver such a presentation thanks to his rich personal experience: he volunteers as a coxswain at the KNRM lifeboat station and is involved in the practical safety training at the Maritime Institute Willem Barentsz.

The presentation delivered by Henk was a reflection of personal experiences and the intention to improve safety training and safety awareness on board of (fishing) vessels.
