Marlins will start three new courses covering dignity at work to help mitigate issues of bullying and harassment on board cargo and cruise ships, as well as stress management, and physical health. More new e-learning courses on Crew Wellbeing will follow.
According to the agreement, the UK P&I Club will recognise Marlins' e-learning courses as a primary source of information and guidance for seafarers looking to maintain and improve their personal health.
Catherine Logie, Business Development Director, Marlins, stated:
We are delighted that UK P&I Club has chosen Marlins’ elearning courses as a means of supporting seafarer wellbeing. We aim to help seafarers cope with the personal challenge of working at sea by proving clear information and practical suggestions that individuals themselves can act on
Addressing the issue, Sophia Bullard, Director, Crew Health Programme of UK P&I Club, mentioned that the well-being of seafarers has always been a key feature of the UK P&I Club Crew Health Team’s work. In fact, the importance of education and awareness around poor mental health continues to be a priority.
