Tristar “Safety at Sea” Conference

Promoting Welfare & Well-being of Seafarers

December 8 2021 | Expo 2020 Dubai | India Pavilion

Tristar Group will host its Third Annual “Safety At Sea” conference on 8th December 2021 at the Indian Pavilion, Dubai Expo 2020.

This initiative by Tristar is to draw industry and global attention on crew mental health issues and to improve the general well-being of all seafarers.

Seafarers are not given sufficient attention by most countries, ship owners and other stakeholders. We need to address all their problems at sea and on-the-job, where lack of social interaction can easily bring about depression and mental health issues.

As business owners and leaders in the maritime Industry the onus is on us to take a leading role to ensure that     the mental health of seafarers is no longer a taboo subject and that we create platforms to discuss and put in place an ecosystem that will enable seafarers to seek counselling or professional advice before it is too late.

Protection of seafarers is also an essential part of the business and we aim to awaken the industry on this subject.

Speakers and panelists will include industry experts and sailing crew members. The conference will be     broadcast live to crewing centers in Mumbai, India and in Manila, Philippines, and will be available online for those who cannot attend physically.

The format will encourage interaction between speakers and the participants who will be given the opportunity to ask questions in advance before the actual conference. The questions will be shortlisted and raised with the panelists during the live event.

We welcome everyone to contribute to make this ongoing initiative a success again by taking part and asking questions so that positive benefits will be achieved for the seafarers for whom stress, loneliness, isolation and fatigue are serious day-to-day challenges.
