Improving Seafarers’ Health and Welfare
Our service provides a confidential evaluation of general health and personal work related fitness both medical and physical to encourage and monitor seafarers towards improved wellbeing throughout their working lives.
We use a non-invasive ultrasound device to analyse body composition which accurately informs the seafarer about body fat, (BMI), hydration levels, muscular condition and more.
We also check the physical status of individuals relevant to the demands of the their roles. Thousands of seafarers have benefited from these evaluations and we have evidence based studies showing notable health improvements and very significant cost savings.
The Initiative consultant spends quality time aboard vessels and installations building confidence and trust, helping with personal issues, supporting healthy option catering, surveying and advising on fitness facilities and several other aspects of training.
