Why the programme is effective:
The PEME Programme has proven to be the leading loss prevention initiative within the UK Club. It is evident from the statistical findings that it has provided a system for proper accountability by the clinic on the quality of the pre-employment medical examinations. It has also led to consistency in a high examination standard to protect a shipowner from claims arising from medical conditions that should have been detected during the pre-employment examination.

Participating shipowners are provided with a proven system for managing this aspect of crew risks and thus they benefit by having a fitter and healthier crew. This programme is the most extensive and inclusive system in the industry.

According to Phil Nichols, Regional Director - "An unfit crewman will have, or is likely to cause a major incident due to illness; so it's not just medical costs and sick wages that are at stake. Consider a few avoidable interruptions: delay in journey, disruption aboard vessel and unhappy customers or passengers."

Programme Objectives:

  • Screen out existing medical conditions during pre-employment exam
  • Reduce the value and volume of illness and repatriation claims for participating members
  • Deliver a proven value added service to Members
  • Focused growth of clinic network
  • Ensure the needs of all Programme Members are met
