‘Salamty’ safety campaign was held in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Abu Dhabi Department of Transport and Abu Dhabi Police
SAFEEN, the Middle East’s leading integrated marine services provider and subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, has launched ‘Salamty’ to raise awareness among Dalma Island students of passenger safety on ferries. It was organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Abu Dhabi Department of Transport and the General Command of Abu Dhabi Police.
Around 200 students from Dalma Island’s schools participated in the initiative which took place on board the “Al Dhafrah Ferry”, which transfers passengers between the new Dalma Port and Mugharaq Port in Al Dhafrah region. SAFEEN’s Safety and Security team, in cooperation with the ferry’s captain and crew, gave an interactive presentation on maritime safety procedures and demonstrated how to use lifesaving equipment. Students also took part in a competition to test the speed of their response when using safety equipment.
Capt. Adil Banihammad, Acting CEO of Abu Dhabi Marine Services – SAFEEN, praised the support offered by SAFEEN’s partners and their efforts to ensure increased awareness of safety procedures on passenger ferries.
He commented “Salamty is part of the role Abu Dhabi Ports plays in CSR and its unwavering commitment towards local communities. We are constantly seeking to raise awareness and enhance knowledge about maritime safety practices to ensure passenger safety. We are delighted with the remarkable participation and interest from the students and look forward to organising more safety campaigns in cooperation with our partners in the future.”
