The Impact of Technology on Crew Well-being conference

11 Sep 2019, Inmarsat Global, City Road, London

How do we help the seafarer of the future? That’s the question being posed to the shipping industry and maritime charities as they explore the impact of technology on crew well-being at this special event during London International Shipping Week (LISW).

The afternoon of engaging debates will see the LISW nominated charities, The Mission to Seafarers, Sailors’ Society, Seafarers UK and Stella Maris (Apostleship of the Sea), draw on their combined 550-plus years’ experience to explore with industry leaders what seafarers of the future will need.

The free conference, sponsored by Inmarsat, includes a keynote speech from Dr Grahaeme Henderson, vice president, Shipping and Maritime, Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Ltd on: ‘How shipping can thrive: today, tomorrow and in the future’.

This will be followed by four panel debates, looking at everything from how technology can improve health and safety and whether it can replace the personal touch to how other industries tackle issues like fatigue, isolation and long contracts and how charities should prepare for the welfare needs of new generations of men and women at sea.

The afternoon will be followed by the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) Awards and a drinks reception.
