UK P&I Club: A 1000 ways of preventing losses
The UK P&I Club's industry leading loss prevention department issued its 1000th
bulletin this week. It marks 17 years of weekly topical bulletins aimed at reducing Members' exposure to claims by raising awareness of risks.
The Club has long believed that a proactive and inclusive attitude to loss prevention is key to preventing incidents occurring. The weekly bulletins enable the Club to communicate timely and topical issues to Members through the Club's website and weekly email. The bulletin is one of a number of tools which the Club use to addresses a wide range of shipping risks including cargo, environmental matters, human error, navigational issues, operational practice, personal injury, safety and security issues.
The first bulletin issued, warned members of problems with shipments of sugar in Brazil and since then the Loss Prevention department have kept up to date with the latest issues and events from across the globe utalising our network of offices and correspondents for the latest information.
The latest loss prevention bulletins are shared every week on the website, by email and ontwitter.
