How does Standard Clubs' loss prevention approach differ from other P&I clubs?
Standard Clubs’ loss prevention is unique in several ways, as we take a risk-based approach to our offer. With our loss prevention service dating back to 1989, we have had time to see what works best for our members and adapt to the ever changing maritime industry. Our member risk review (MRRs)are a unique part of the club’s quality assurance process and key to our success as a mutual. They help us get to know new members, which in turn ensures we can provide them with better service and support. It also gives our existing members confidence that all new members are high quality operators, and both new and existing members benefit from sharing best practice via our surveyors.
We also prioritise first-class financial security as we know that it is essential for our customers to have consistent, reliable and high-quality support. If you are looking for a first-class lost prevention offer, get in touch with our loss prevention team at Standard Club.
What is a risk assessment in marine loss prevention?
A risk assessment in marine loss prevention is a methodical process for identifying and evaluating potential risks associated with the operation of a vessel or marine facility. At Standard Club, our risk assessment covers both ship risk review, where we assess your vessel, identify any hazards and provide recommendations to improve safety; as well as member risk review where we help maximise the safety and security of your operations by identifying potential hazards. Based on the result of these risk assessments, the Standard Club loss prevention team will develop risk mitigation strategies unique to the member’s individual needs.
