Wellness at Sea is a coaching programme aimed at improving seafarers’ on board well-being. The vast majority of incidents occurring at sea are often attributed to ‘human error’, a term that disguises a variety of underlying problems.

Fatigue, poor mental health, stress and many other issues all affect seafarers going about their daily work. They can be the difference between safe transit and a major incident.

Wellness at Sea seeks to combat these issues by addressing ‘wellness’ as a holistic concept made up of five specific areas of well-being: Social, Emotional, Physical, Intellectual and Spiritual.

Who is the Wellness at Sea programme aimed at?

The course is available at two levels: an Officer Programme and a Cadet Programme.

In 2015, the Officer Programme will initially be offered to selected companies and will be available for wider use subsequent to this.

The Cadet Programme be available through several maritime training colleges working in partnership with Sailors’ Society later this year.
