Seafarers’ Health Information Programme
Claims related to illness are frequently notified to the Club, with the number of claims reported remaining steady in number over the last five policy years.
With this in mind, the Club has partnered with the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) to raise awareness of crew-related illness and to assist our Members in mitigating against related incidents.
As a partner, the Club will contribute towards ISWAN’s Seafarers’ Health Information Project (SHIP), an initiative that promotes and distributes health information materials to shipping companies, seafarers’ centres, and direct to seafarers.
The Club’s loss prevention specialists will distribute health and well-being information across the year to the vessel owners, operators and managers who make up the Club’s membership.
