Keeping your crew fit for life at sea

Protecting the health of your workforce – and your bottom line

The coronavirus pandemic has placed immeasurable stress on the maritime industry and the seafarers who keep it going.

The coronavirus pandemic has imposed huge stress onto the maritime industry and the seafarers who keep it going. Extended contracts have led to seafarers feeling exhausted and worried about their families back home. Many are also anxious about their future job security, or where the next contract will come from.

With human error accounting for 80 per cent of all accidents at sea, fatigue, stress and depression on board don’t just pose a threat to seafarer mental health, but also to the effective running of a ship and the safety of its whole crew.

Shipping companies are investing in good crew welfare now, to show their commitment to their workforce and help their businesses successfully navigate the fallout of the crisis.

Our pioneering Wellness at Sea programme provides the tools to help your crews – and your company – to thrive.

“After completing the session, our seafarers shared they feel able to more effectively take charge of their own well-being. Importantly, they also know it will arm them with the skills to identify colleagues that need help and support.”

SIMON DOUGHTY, FORMER CEO, WALLEM GROUP LTD

We believe wellness doesn’t just refer to a person’s physical health, but to all the different, interconnected aspects of who they are – from their relationships and emotions to their finances.

That’s why Sailors’ Society’s Wellness at Sea programme looks at the wellbeing of the whole person. We coach seafarers to think about their own wellness in five key areas of life: social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual.

By helping seafarers take control of each of these areas of their lives, Wellness at Sea can empower them to make a positive impact on their mental health and wellbeing as a whole.

RESEARCH LED

We’ve worked with researchers at Yale University to better understand wellness and the root causes of illness and injury in working seafarers.

We have also hosted two Wellness at Sea Conferences, bringing international maritime leaders together to discuss how we can improve wellbeing at sea. Read more in our conference resolution paper.
