Wellbeing at Sea Tool (MCA)

The Wellbeing at Sea Tool is a pre-built survey solution that has been designed specifically to support seafarers’ mental health and wellbeing.

Life at sea is one of the most challenging careers to embark on, with rough conditions and long periods away from family. Safety4sea reports that 25% of seafarers have suicidal thoughts, which only increased amid the 2020 pandemic.

The Wellbeing-At-Sea Tool aims to bring about safer lives and safer ships – and we believe it is the perfect tool to better understand seafarers’ mental health and wellbeing. It features a wide range of incisive questions and one-click reporting that provides a visual summary of your data.
