Loss Prevention

Our Loss Prevention service supports Members and brokers with operational and technical matters, assisting Members in minimising their exposure to claims.

Many Members have requirements specific to their vessels and operations and therefore the Loss Prevention service is able to create bespoke initiatives to assist them. These initiatives include presentations, seminars, training and on board assessments. Learn more about our value added services and the Loss Prevention team here.

The Club’s partnership with The International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN)

Recognising the importance of health and wellbeing, the Club has been working with ISWAN since 2016 on raising awareness of a variety of guidance and initiatives created for seafarers.

In 2021 the Club collaborated with ISWAN to create a new app, ISWAN for Seafarers. The app is available to downloaded for free from Google Play (for Android devices) and the App Store (for iOS devices).

ISWAN for Seafarers is a native app meaning it does not require an internet connection after the initial download and hence addresses the issue of lack of or poor/expensive internet connectivity. Seafarers can therefore access free, confidential and multilingual support at any time while at sea or ashore.

SeafarerHelp (for all seafarers and their families)

Yacht Crew Help (for professional yacht crew)

The app also provides a wealth of useful information and resources specifically for seafarers, including ISWAN’s Good Mental Health Guides and other self-help health materials, access to ISWAN’s Seafarer Centre Directory, and guidance on topics such as contract issues, abandonment, and bullying and harassment.

Loss Prevention publications

The Club also publishes guidance to all of our Members and brokers on a regular basis, highlighting and advising on a wide range of industry topics and risks that they may be exposed to.
