Survey – Trauma in shipping
We at Alandia Loss Prevention, together with Seaways Psychology Services Ltd., are passionate about promoting better mental health within the shipping industry. Therefore, we want to raise awareness of and take steps to improve mental health in shipping for both onboard and onshore personnel.
One of the areas we want to shed more light on is the experience of psychological trauma at sea. In order to gain insights and raise awareness of traumatic experiences within the shipping industry, we conducted a survey on experiences of trauma on board. The survey asked participants to comment on their experience of critical incidents at sea, the impact of such incidents on participants, and whether they needed and could access support at the time.
The survey was conducted online and all answers were anonymous.
The results of the survey were shared for the first time on 10 November 2021 in our online workshop, which focused on the experience of trauma within the shipping industry.
Should you have any questions about the survey or the online workshop, please do not hesitate to contact us.
