The Club has produced a series of award-winning educational training videos based on common, real life shipping accidents. Analysis of these incidents, which have caused death, injury and ship damage, serve as lessons to Members and prompt the critical question: Could this happen on my ship?
The video series features incidents involving injury, pollution, cargo claims and navigation, all gleaned from the thousands of Club claims along with five decade of extensive research into loss prevention issues and risk. Supported by an extensive catalogue of written case studies, these videos identify key lessons learnt to help members avoid similar incidents.
