By accelerating the adoption of digital technology for safety, we aim to make the world a safer place.
Our Safetytech program is a joint initiative with Lloyd’s Register, one of the world’s leading providers of professional services for engineering and technology and Lloyd’s Register Foundation, a charitable foundation helping to protect life and property by supporting engineering-related education, public engagement and the application of research.

- ROUND 1
Human Safety Onboard
The nature of marine and offshore, and the environments in which these industries operate, can be particularly dangerous. Although conditions for crew and personnel are improving, there is more to be done to improve the safety of life on board ships and floating platforms. Round 1 sought innovative digital ideas to find ways to create safer work environments, featuring two industry-wide challenges and two challenges with industry challenge partners Gassco and Kotug.
- ROUND 2
Detecting Safety Risks in Critical Infrastructure Industries.
Eleven startups were shortlisted to pitch for our second innovation day, in areas such as AI, computer vision and behaviour recognition. Cutting-edge solutions were presented, to solve some of the most urgent safety challenges within the marine, energy and critical infrastructure industries, set by the Safety Accelerator in collaboration with challenge partners Scorpio, Pacific International Lines (PIL), Infratek and Odfjell Drilling.
- ROUND 3
Innovative Risk Detection Methods.
For this round, our challenge partners came from the marine, energy and food industries respectively. Shell, Benugo and Wallenius Wilhelmsen each sought innovative solutions to detect risk and sought applications from startups who had developed such solutions. Effective risk detection methods can potentially prevent safety incidents from occuring.
- ROUND 4
Improving safety through data analytics applications.
Our fourth round of Innovation Challenges were set in conjunction with industry challenge partners Scorpio, Bernard Schulte and the Discovering Safety Programme, who each sought innovative digital solutions to improve safety through data analytics applications. Data Analytics technology has the potential to transform how we address safety, by providing insight into previous incidents and in doing so, preventing similar incidents occurring in the future.
Our focus areas include:
- Autonomous systems
- High-hazard industries
- Transport & manufacturing
- Fossil-fueled transport
- Safe supply chains for medical waste
- Maritime, sea, & water
- Food supply chains
- Infrastructure & construction
