MENTAL HEALTH & THE REMOTE ROTATIONAL WORKER SYMPOSIUM

OVERVIEW

The International SOS Foundation is offering a new virtual symposium, focusing on the latest insight in mental health of the remote rotational workforce. This 3-hour session is designed to enable stakeholders who have a duty of care to their rotational workforce make evidence-based adjustments and recommendations to their employees to protect and promote mental health in this type of working arrangement.

For many organisations, this has become an even greater urgency in the current COVID-19 environment, which has put increased pressure on a working format already recognised as having a high level of stress. 

 

GROUNDBREAKING NEW DATA

The symposium is based on the findings of a groundbreaking new study commissioned by the International SOS Foundation. Focusing specifically on Mental Health & the Remote Rotational Worker, it brings together global findings from stakeholder interviews, a survey of remote rotational workers and an extensive literature review. The findings include evidence of the high level of suicidal thoughts, clinical depression, impacts on physical health (such as diet) and how COVID-19 has had an impact on this workforce.

Taking an in-depth view of these findings, the symposium will enable professionals to increase awareness of the psychological implications of their remote rotational working and put in place strategies to mitigate risks and increase the safety, health, security and wellbeing.
