Britannia P&I Club’s annual loss prevention seminar held in Mumbai


The Britannia P&I Club’s annual loss prevention seminar was held at the JW Marriott Juhu Hotel in Mumbai on May 2 and 3, 2018.


These technical seminars are intended to provide a forum for mariners, managers and superintendents to hear from fellow maritime professionals about current topics in the marine industry, relating particularly to safety and best practice, illustrated with examples of experiences of Britannia’s members.


The presenters this year were Capt. John Leach, Associate Director and Capt. Shajed Khan, Risk Manager, from Britannia UK, and Mr Edward Allsop, Risk Manager, from Britannia Hong Kong.


The topics for this year included shipboard safety and security, with particular focus on stowaway matters and cyber security. Maintenance is another current focus area and the presentation addressed the responsibilities and oversight of ship staff as well as shore management using examples of actual accidents and near misses.


The cargo focus for this year was dangerous cargo carried on container ships, and the case studies illustrated the hazards associated with some of the cargoes that have reportedly been responsible for a number of recent casualties.


The afternoon session included a simulation centred around an ECDIS case study, which is based on actual incidents highlighted by the UK MAIB and other maritime investigative bodies, and features members of Britannia’s Loss Prevention team.


The seminar concluded with a workshop which reviewed a fatality in a ship’s engine room from the perspective of the ship’s command, the ISM safety management requirements and actual shipboard procedures, and the fire control strategy and containment.


Pandi Correspondents Pvt. Ltd are the correspondents in India for The Britannia Steam Ship Insurance Association Ltd and organised the seminar for them in Mumbai, said a release.
