Port and terminal risks: Single person incidents

TT Club's Loss Prevention team is pleased to have run a webinar discussion around single person incidents including slips, trips and falls. 

Single person incidents make up 5% of TT's port and terminal claims. This may seem like a small percentage, but it's the sixth most common claim we see and a single injury claim has the potential to be extremely costly. According to the TT's claims data, 94% of bodily injury claims in the ports and terminals we insure are caused by operational human factors. This means that implementing procedures to reduce human error could drastically reduce these types of claims, which is what has been covered in this webinar. 

This session has covered:

  • TT Club claims statistics
  • Identifying poor practices
  • Risk assessment
  • Incident prevention
  • Behaviours 
  • Training
