All at sea: how are seafarers faring in an age of mental wellbeing?

Having been overlooked and considered taboo for many years, the issue of mental health is steadily emerging. Unfortunately, one such example is the maritime industry. Despite the burden of long stretches at sea, and the obvious impact this has on a seafarer’s mental wellbeing, the issue of mental health has not been a particular focus.

Business sustainability using continuous training solutions helps companies to embrace a culture of “investing in people”. Companies invest in training their employees rather than hiring new people which can be much more costly on different levels.
