At the Innovation Day, specially selected startup finalists of the Safety Accelerator's Round 2 Innovation Challenges will pitch their solutions to a panel of expert judges, and an audience of investors, media and safetytech stakeholders. 


Successful startups will not only benefit from pilot funding, but also the opportunity to collaborate with industry-leading corporate challenge partners to accelerate the development of their technologies and open up new markets. Partners for this challenge round include ScorpioPacific International LinesInfratek and Odfjell Drilling.


The Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator was launched in June 2018 by Lloyd’s Register and Lloyd’s Register Foundation in partnership with Plug and Play. The Safety Accelerator brings together digital technology startups and industry partners to work together and test digital solutions to critical safety and risk challenges. We aim to make the world a safer place, by encouraging the growth of the safetytech industry and accelerating the adoption of digital technology for safety. 


Join us at Innovation Day to: 

  • Hear from entrepreneurs developing cutting edge digital solutions to solve critical safety challenges in marine, offshore and energy industries
  • Network with new potential partners, collaborators and suppliers
  • Learn about the Safety Accelerator and how we can help you to solve your organisation’s toughest safety challenge


Challenges we will be hearing safetytech solution pitches for:

  1. Marine Incident Insights with Scorpio, a leading global shipping company. This challenge seeks to help ship operators gather and analyse data about crew behaviour and the onboard work environment, whilst safeguarding user privacy, to develop a deeper understanding of why wrong decisions happen and ultimately to improve processes, training and staffing to reduce risk of human error incidents.
  2. Determining Master’s and Crew’s Psychological and Emotional Health with Pacific International Lines (PIL), the 9th largest containership operator in the world. This challenge seeks innovative methods to assess the psychological and emotional wellbeing of individual crew members in real-time whilst they are onboard and before they are about to go on duty, whilst protecting user privacy, to ensure the safety and health of the concerned seafarer as well as the safety of others onboard, the vessels and the marine environment.
  3. AI-Driven Real-Time Error Detection with Infratek, a leading total supplier in the Nordic region in the fields of electrical grids, lighting and railway systems. This challenge seeks innovative proposals for solutions to offer real-time feedback to infrastructure workers to ensure a job is done completely and correctly before leaving a site, to improve safety for the worker and third parties.
  4. Video Detection of Physical Asset Changes to Prevent Falling Objects with Odfjell Drilling, an international drilling, well service and engineering company. This challenge seeks to enable oil and gas drilling operators to use drilling sites’ existing closed-circuit camera network to detect significant changes to a rig’s infrastructure that could result in falling objects injuring workers and damaging the asset. 

Full agenda to be announced shortly. The event will be followed by a networking drinks reception from 6-8pm.
