New Learn The Ropes Loss Prevention Video Published

A new video has been added to the Club's recently released LEARN THE ROPES video series that addresses securing floor structures within the engine room compartment.

The work of a seafarer is inherently risky. Injuries at sea occur in various forms and personal injury is one of the most frequent among all P&I-related occurrences. Major accidents involving slips, trips, and falls comprise a significant proportion of personal injury claims. Many minor injuries, such as bumps, bruises, sprains, etc., are not reported and do not make it into the P&I statistics at all.

Unlike risks that originate from overwhelming natural causes, trips and falls caused by poor housekeeping are perfectly avoidable. Whilst this new video “Secure Engine Room Floor Plates” focuses on the risks of trips and falls in engine rooms, it is equally relevant to all ship compartments.

The video is available to view through the Club's video page or West P&I YouTube® Channel. A digital copy of the video may be obtained by contacting the Loss Prevention Department.
