Sandra Welch, Sailors’ Society’s director of programme, said: “We are really pleased to have UK P&I Club’s backing and recognition of the value of Sailors’ Society’s Wellness at Sea programme. Seafarers who undertake Wellness at Sea coaching will be equipped to better meet their social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual needs, thereby helping to prevent and minimise poor health or incidents at sea. By focusing on people rather than problems, we seek to support the centre point around which our industry revolves.”
In 2018 the Sailors Society Wellness at Sea programme was launched as an e-learning training platform. The coaching programme seeks to enable seafarers to improve their on board health and well-being by exploring five different aspects of wellness and the impact that they can have on the safe running of a ship.
