Swedish Club senior claims manager Birgitta Hed has been re-elected Chair of the IG’s Personal Injury Sub Committee (PISC). The PISC is one of more than 20 sub-committees established by IG that provide forums for mutual cooperation in areas of common interest between the clubs on topics such as the impact of legislation, contractual terms and general developments in shipping. It focuses on liability for personal injury and encompasses a number of working groups.
Ms Hed is a member of the Philippine Working Group within the PISC, which monitors procedural and legislative developments in the Philippines.
The ultimate aim of various International Group sub committees is to serve the interest of the mutual shipping community insured by clubs in the International Group by making a tangible contribution to loss prevention.
