Energy major Shell is developing eight wellbeing training programmes for seafarers which it is making available to the industry as part of its drive to improve wellness and mental health across the industry.

Speaking at London International Shipping Week on ‘The impact of technology on crew welfare, with a focus on mental health’, Shell Shipping & Maritime vice president Grahaeme Henderson said this training can be conducted on board ships to start to address five key areas that the company believes influence mental wellbeing.
