As part of LISW 2019, the four nominated charities for the week have come together to ask the industry to share their thoughts on the impact of technology on crew welfare, with a particular emphasis on mental well-being. The charities thank Inmarsat for their kindness in sponsoring this event.
Technology continues to shape the shipping industry. Today, we live in an age where drones provide deliveries to ships at anchor and augmented reality is used to raise bridges and process containers. But against this ever-changing backdrop, seafarers and their welfare have stayed largely the same.
As the industry embraces new technologies to make shipping safer, quicker and more environmentally friendly, the Apostleship of the Sea, The Mission to Seafarers, Sailors’ Society and Seafarers’ UK will draw on their 400+ years of experience to explore with industry leaders what the seafarers of the future will need in terms of welfare.
