During his presentation at the last GREEN4SEA Conference, Mr. David Nichol, Senior Loss Prevention Executive at Thomas Miller (Hellas) Ltd., focused on bunker spills, examining their root causes and what loss prevention measures can be implemented to combat them. Mr. Nichol noted that spills into the marine environment relating to bunkering operations continue to occur with worrying regularity.
David Nichol, Thomas Miller Hellas, talks about important issues related to crew mental health, highlighting that a broad range of factors, including anxiety, social isolation, pressure of work and disturbed sleep, can negatively influence the mental health of seafarers. Crew fitness evaluations have previously given emphasis to physical health and it is only relatively recently that due attention is being given to the mental wellbeing of seafarers. Therefore, the UK P&I Club places a high priority on the matter by raising awareness to the problem and in providing support and advice to its members.
