Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) launched its latest line of educational and training campaigns for floating restaurants in the emirates of Dubai. The drive, which falls in line with the ongoing efforts to promote maritime safety under best international practices, is aimed at raising awareness about safe operations of the floating restaurants.

Held periodically in Arabic, English and Urdu, the campaign includes training of the staff and crew to handle emergency situations, disaster response management, installation and maintenance of emergency signs, defining of escape routes for emergency evacuations, appropriate evacuation procedures, and proper use of life jackets and rafts. The campaign also tackles subjects related to maritime safety, including effective internal and external communication, fire-fighting policies, and means of preventing marine pollution caused by operational oil spills, among others.

Amer Ali, Executive Director of DMCA, said: “The new awareness campaign complements DMCA’s efforts to consolidate Dubai’s leading position as an attractive international tourist, business, and investment destination which offers new opportunities across various segments of marine tourism.”

Last year, DMCA launched a Cruise Logbook which is a key addition to regulating the floating restaurant industry in Dubai. The Cruise Logbook is a standardized record book that urges owners of these restaurants to record all their vessel operations as a unified source of documented information. This measure helps marine operators to improve their management and technical competencies, while offering advanced and high-quality services that meet maritime safety and security standards.

“Floating restaurants are a key segment of the investment landscape in Dubai’s tourism and maritime industry. This has prompted us to lay down a clear framework to ensure their safe and secure operations. Our campaign also makes sure that floating restaurants adhere to the stringent standards of Maritime Sector Strategy (MSS) aimed at creating a vibrant and secure maritime industry,” concluded Mohammed Al Bastaki, Director of Maritime Operations, DMCA.
