How to use the Maritime Wellbeing programmes

The programme materials contained within this website have been designed so that they can be used immediately with little or no additional work.  They are also available for companies to adapt, to complement their existing programmes.

The programmes are spilt in two types:

Company
Guidance for ship managers to develop more formalised, company-managed structures in support of crew wellbeing.
 

Shipboard
Short, easy to deliver information and activities for use onboard a vessel or during seafarer engagements such as office visits and conferences.  These can be delivered as facilitated discussions, as part of providing general information to crews or by individual crew members as part of their self development; 

For best success, ship managers would ideally undertake a situational analysis and review the wellbeing implementation plan prior to rolling out the shipboard programmes.
