InterManager Supports IMO’s Annual Day of the Seafarer
The physical and mental wellbeing of seafarers must be given priority by ship managers – says InterManager General-Secretary Kuba Szymanski to mark Day of the Seafarer today.
As today (June 25th) is marking the IMO’s annual Day of the Seafarer, InterManager, the international trade association for third party and in-house ship managers, is happy that focus is being placed on the wellbeing of seafarers, as good mental health can lead to fewer accidents and increased productivity.
In line with this ethos, InterManager has been supporting a research project being carried out by Solent University in Southampton in examining seafarers’ welfare in a year-long project which focusses on mentoring seafarers.
The Mentoring Seafarers’ Project is looking at what the industry is offering in terms of mentoring provision, including both formal and informal schemes, and highlighting how these can help to combat issues faced at sea in order to improve the wellbeing of our seafarers.
Mr Szymanski said: “It is vital that we support our seafarers to ensure they are healthy and happy while out at sea. We must appreciate the challenges that come with being a seafarer such as loneliness, unsociable hours, and in some case high stress and fatigue levels. To ensure out seafarers are doing the most effective job, it is important they are given the necessary support to overcome these.
“However, it is important to remember seafaring is a very rewarding and fulfilling job. Similar to other industries, mental health is a challenge that must be supported and not ignored. I welcome the IMO’s excellent campaign this year.
