After 20,000 downloads of the popular ILO/MLC and ISM/ISPS apps, the UK Club and Lloyds Register have converted three more of their PSC booklets into apps, including 'Port State Control', 'Marine Pollution Prevention' and 'Fire Safety'. By popular demand the original apps have been modified to attach photographs to the checklists and email functionality enabled to allow checklists to be sent direct to other parties. These apps will allow our Members to access these checklists in a more user friendly way.
Please see our apps page to download the latest apps from the UK Club.
The UK P&I Club has joined forces with leading marine cargo insurer Allianz AGCS Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) to publish new practical guidance for shipowners and operators on how to carry heavy-lift and project cargoes safely at sea. Recent incidents with such cargoes have led to significant ship and cargo losses as well as multi-million dollar claims for consequential project delays.
Self Assessment Scheme
Our new self assessment scheme will enable Members to use the Club’s historical claims data and expertise to review their own practical efforts to keep their ships safe.
Focusing on cargo, pollution, personal injury, collision and third party property claims, a simple and logical system will be provided to participating Members to assess the Controls that are in place on board their ships and to mitigate the various Threats that may be encountered. These are based on the Club’s long experience in dealing with over 12,000 serious claims over the past 20 years, where some 76 Threats have been identified as having been allowed to develop into an incident due to one or more of 450 Controls having failed.
Carrying solid bulk cargoes safely outlines the precautions to be taken before accepting solid bulk cargoes for shipment; sets out procedures for safe loading and carriage and details the primary hazards associated with different types of cargoes.
The UK P&I Club has launched the No Room for Risk app, including a 14 minute video introduction to the Club’s highly successful risk management project.
The UK P&I Club is committed to safety. Its high-level loss prevention programme – the most extensive in the industry – aims to offset rising claims and maintain quality amongst Members. This concise Brochure details all our Loss Prevention initiatives.
