About the Centre for Maritime Safety

The Centre for Maritime Safety is responsible for evidence-based strategy, policy, and awareness campaigns for the NSW Government’s maritime program.

The Centre includes the Maritime Strategy and Policy, Safer Boating and Research and Evaluation teams across Transport’s Safety, Environment and Regulation branch.

The Centre works to deliver:

  • a more integrated, best-practice approach to safety and efforts to reduce deaths and serious injuries on NSW waterways
  • increased efficiency through sharing: skills, research and data systems
  • increased proficiency in evidence-based safety policy and campaign development and delivery
  • increased strategic collaboration to a Safe System Approach to minimising fatalities and serious injuries.

The Centre for Maritime Safety is key to ensuring maritime safety issues remain a priority at a strategic level within both the State and National context.
