SAFETY4SEA Crew Wellness Survey: Addressing wellness at sea

Lately, the industry is highly concerned about the importance of seafarer wellness and there are already many campaigns and industry’s initiatives trying to address crew well-being issues. Focus has been shed on finding ways to address the five key aspects of wellness for people working onboard: Social, Emotional, Physical, Intellectual and Spiritual. But how have we succeed so far?

Strategy, motivation, support and engagement are the keys to a successful approach; in this context, SAFETY4SEA is pleased to launch the Crew Wellness Survey which will run within Q4 of 2019 with the aim to examine factors around seafarers’ life while working at sea and provide a picture to shipping organizations as they actually have very little information about it.

With this survey, we are seeking to assess how maritime stakeholders have realized crew wellness as implemented onboard. In addition, we attempt to understand how important the five dimensions of wellness at sea are for working seafarers and all factors related.

The survey refers to people working onboard and requires less than five minutes. Results, key points and data analysis will be presented within Q1 of 2020.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation!
