The official guidance publication issued by the UK P&I Club to provide information about the so-called PEME, standing for the pre-employment medical examination programme. Subject UK P&I Club programme has been named the leading and most effective initiative in the field of loss prevention within the Club. All clinics approved under PEME will be accountable to the Club and all its Members for performance.
The scheme has been specifically designed in order to protect owners of the ships from the claims that commonly arise from the medical conditions that were existing before employment. Another goal is to provide the crew members with the perfect health checks before they go to work at sea.
In fact this program is deservedly considered most inclusive and remarkably extensive system currently available in the maritime shipping industry and is one of the fundamental elements of the loss prevention scheme established in the Club.
This compact booklet will provide the basic information about the program, starting with the introduction. The chapters of the booklet cover the examination schemes, the Crew Health process and relevant advice, testimonials and other information.
