Providing the tools to help you and your company combat fatigue, poor mental health, stress and other issues that affect seafarers in their daily lives.
We believe wellness doesn’t just refer to a person’s physical health, but to all the different, yet connected 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 well-being 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 health and well-being as a whole.
“We, at Euronav, are concerned about the health and well-being of our own seafarers and it is with a sense of our broader responsibility to the whole industry that we support this initiative, particularly as it emphasises mental and emotional well-being, which are often ignored, but when they are absent their place is soon taken by accidents and injury.”Paddy Rogers, CEO, Euronav
“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
