TT Club's Loss Prevention team is pleased to invite you to join a webinar discussion around quay container cranes and loss prevention actions.

Quay container crane accidents are the biggest cause of insurance claims for TT Club's port and terminal Members. As the impacts of climate change become more prominent, extreme weather events are occurring more frequently, increasing the risk of quay crane collapses. Such incidents can be extremely costly with damage to equipment, disruption or reduction in operations and, at worst, loss of life.

During the session we'll cover:

  • Claims analysis/top risks and trends
  • Loss Prevention Actions
  • Technology solutions
  •  Equipment specifications
  • Post incident/expert witness investigations
  • Case studies
