Dealing with Isolation

Hunterlink’s Dealing with Isolation training workshop is ideal for workers facing new Working From Home arrangements in light of COVID-19 as well as for new workers going into a Fly-In-Fly-Out arrangement for the first time, or workers stationed for long periods of time at remote worksites or travelling alone for weeks or even months at a time.

With Hunterlink’s background in seafarer welfare, we understand better than most the importance of managing the isolation and loneliness of extended periods of time spent away from family and friends.

Spending weeks at a time in one place can take its toll on a worker’s mental health and can present in the following ways:

  • Lack of motivation
  • Lethargy
  • Irregular sleep
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Impatience or irritability
  • Persistent sadness or depression

Not only do these risks have an impact on the performance and productivity of your workforce, they are significant risk-factors for workplace accidents.

Hunterlink’s Dealing with Isolation webinar training provides workers with and in-depth discussion about the challenges of remote or isolated work and strategies to cope and overcome these challenges.

Through the prism of isolated working, we discuss:

  • Mental Health issues, including stress, anxiety and depression
  • The challenge of periods of separation, isolation and loneliness
  • Unhealthy lifestyles
  • Substance and alcohol abuse
  • Financial overcommitment
  • Relationship and family stresses
