The UK Club’s Loss Prevention team combines practical solutions that address Members’ needs and claims experience with research into the wider issues that impact directly on P&I insurance and the Club’s exposure to claims.

Extensive experience

Every year, the UK P&I Club deals with thousands of claims using the expertise and experience of its professional claims handlers, ex-seafarers and lawyers. With five decades of research into loss prevention issues the Club has developed a formidable body of technical material on maritime risks. Each month the Loss Prevention team aim to share some of the Club’s claims experience, by looking at real case examples and identifying lessons learnt to help Members avoid similar incidents.

Lessons Learnt Videos

The Loss Prevention team has launched the first in a series of educational and informative, reflective-learning, training videos.

The videos provide an interactive training experience with a focus on educating crew members on common marine accidents and how to prevent them in future using real-life examples. The first of the Lessons Learnt videos, Death of a Bosun, tells the tragic story of a Bosun who died during a routine lifeboat drill. The accident occurs due to miscommunication between staff, faulty safety devices and unclear instructions. The videos feature solutions and thought-provoking, preventative strategies to mitigate the risk of accidents like those portrayed happening again. The video series will focus on a wide variety of P&I risks including personal injury, pollution, cargo claims and navigation incidents.
