Maritime Industry May Lack Sensitivity to Psychological Issues

Tuesday, October 02, 2007
THE London P&I Club has drawn attention to the continuing need for recognition and understanding of psychological disorders affecting those employed in the shipping industry.

The Club quotes Prof Francesco Amenta, CIRM Scientific Director, who stated that issues including stress, anxiety and depression should be handled at the earliest possible opportunity. He went on to indicate that shipping is much more sensitive to technology and safety issues than it is to health problems. The London Club encourages its members, where appropriate, to seek the advice of professional organisations such as CIRM.
