Health & Safety is billed as the No.1 priority in the energy industry but, in truth, the focus is almost exclusively on safety, with far less emphasis placed on health and virtually ZERO placed on mental health issues.
Asking for help offshore can be difficult, with people keeping their problems to themselves. This has a huge impact on the emotional health and wellbeing of workers’ families too, as upon returning home, bottled up emotional issues often manifest themselves via destructive coping mechanisms which spiral out of control, with the ability to care for oneself growing harder each day.
HOW THIS IS AFFECTING PEOPLE
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the decimation of the workforce within the industry and many of those who were already struggling internally now find themselves out of work, not knowing when, if ever, they will be able to regain employment.
For many workers their employment, and being able to provide for their families, was the only thing that gave them a feeling of self-worth…. all of that has now been torn away.
WHAT OFFSHORE TITANS AIMS TO DO ABOUT THIS
Offshore Titans is a newly launched online platform, created by workers, for workers, dedicated to providing the psychological and lifestyle help necessary to maintain mental stamina within our industry.
Our platform provides community forums and discussion groups.
We've also teamed up with ZipRecruiter, one of the world's largest job boards and have 1000's of live jobs helping people get back into work.
Most importantly our platform features training courses, produced by highly-skilled professionals, covering a range of topics such as:
- Mental Wellbeing and Mindfulness
- Stress and Anxiety Management
- Alcohol and Substance Abuse
- Anger Management
- Financial Management and Responsibility
It is our hope that our efforts will result in an industry step change that will see support for mental health issues being at the forefront of a new industry-wide culture.
The goal of this campaign – the Offshore Titans COVID-19 Hardship Fundraiser – is to be able to raise the funds needed to provide a lifeline to at least 500 men and women who have lost their livelihoods due to COVID-19.
With your help we will supply them with a much-needed LIFETIME, unlimited access to the platform and all the contents therein.
LIMITATIONS WE CURRENTLY HAVE
Why doesn't Offshore Titans simply donate 500 memberships and cover the costs themselves?
Offshore Titans has been setup by only one man – a 20-year veteran of the industry, who has also lost his job due to the downturn resulting from COVID-19.
The setup costs of the platform development and accompanying launch simply prevents us from being able to provide free access at this time, but with your help we can kickstart this project and help potentially 10,000s of men and women who need our help now more than ever.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Every £50 raised has the potential to SAVE A LIFE!
It will provide a LIFETIME membership to our platform, with UNLIMITED ACCESS to all of the course material now and everything developed and released in the future.
A yearly membership plan starts at £99 for a year, but for those who pledge £50+ now we are giving a COMPLETE LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP to someone in need, AND for you as well!
You can nominate or donate the pledge membership, and gain unlimited access to all Offshore Titans resources for yourself. In helping someone else, you can also benefit from all the site has to offer.
If you can't manage to donate that much please know that whatever you can afford will go towards providing this opportunity to a struggling colleague, and give them a place to be supported and helped – to not only survive this time, but thrive beyond it.
Your support will help us to make a meaningful difference to real individuals and their families!
