Thursday the 22nd October ODEO Flare was pronounced the best Safety Product of the Year by Safety at Sea Awards.

Here is what the judges said:

The winning entry must demonstrate an innovative and original development that has the potential to improve safety on board/or onshore. Entries are sought from manufacturers of life saving appliances, monitoring systems or services that protect life or the vessel.

The winner of this category has developed an LED flare that is not only safer than traditional pyrotechnic flares but improves upon their design, lasting for 8 hours at full illumination instead of 30 seconds. Unlike traditional flares, it produces no heat or flames and has no explosive compounds so can be safely stored and disposed of. Plus, it is re-usable, running on replaceable batteries.  

Judges said it was a “Bright idea that is simple, sustainable and user-friendly.”
