Tristar Safety at Sea Conference – Promoting welfare and well-being of seafarers

Tristar Group will host its Third Annual “Safety At Sea” conference on 8th December 2021 (1330 UAE time) at the Dubai Expo Site in the India Pavilion. This continued initiative by Tristar, supported by IIMS, Nautical Institute, and IMarEST, is to draw industry and global attention to crew mental health issues and to improve the general well–being of all seafarers.

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. The protection of Seafarers is also an essential part of the business and we aim to awaken the industry. Speakers and panelists will include industry experts and sailing crew members.

The conference is being broadcast live to crewing centers in Mumbai and the Philippines and will be available online (see link below to register) for all who cannot attend physically.
