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.

The vessel was scheduled to call at two West African ports for cargo operations. At the first port of call, all operations took place without any untoward incident. However, shortly after berthing alongside at the second port of call as preparations were underway to commence cargo discharge, the crew found two stowaways who had been hiding inside the deck crane pedestals.
