This practical checklist guides the user through each step of the lifeboat launch and recovery process. It covers pre-planning, equipment checks, operational checks and recovery. The laminated, wipe-clean finish makes it easy to update the card each time checks are completed.


Ideally, the checklist should be placed on the Bridge alongside the LSA Information, hung in close vicinity to the survival craft and/or in the ships office alongside the LSA Maintenance folder.

The UK P&I Club is one of the oldest P&I clubs in the world. It has endured for a century and a half with its continuing focus on mutuality. The UK Club has remained constant, weathering periods of profound economic and political change.

Providing a superior service to members at cost has always been the Club’s central purpose. Irrespective of the times, staying true to our specialist role has demanded rigorous financial control.

Our loss prevention department was one of the earliest in the P&I business, and it remains the most extensive, helping to reduce members’ exposure to claims. Other modern initiatives include the in-depth analysis of major claims, conducting on-board risk assessments and sharing training videos with seafarers and shore personnel on lessons learned, drawn from our database. Since the era of the mid-Victorian tramp steamer, The UK P&I Club has looked ahead with its members. The past has enabled us to help prepare the maritime world for future challenges.

For a safer tomorrow at sea, we are championing best industry practice and investing in innovation. The UK P&I Club will continue to focus on what it does best: protecting shipping globally, together.
