CIRCULAR REF: 2019/006 CIRCULATED TO ALL P&I MEMBERS
We would like to take this opportunity to remind our Members of North’s Pre-Employment Medical programme.
Although crew illness claims do arise, many may have been avoided if the seafarer had undergone a comprehensive pre-employment medical examination by a reliable specialist clinic.
In order to reduce incidents and ensure the good health of crew North has, for a number of years, been successfully running two enhanced pre-employment medical programmes, one in the Philippines and one in the Ukraine.
North’s PEME programme is specifically designed to reduce the number of claims arising out of the employment of seafarers suffering from pre-existing medical conditions.
Further details regarding the programmes can be found in North’s PEME briefings, which also provide Members with advice on effective pre-employment medical screening and the selection of suitable clinics in their other crew supply areas worldwide. For further details regarding our PEME programmes please contact the PEME team.
