Monday, October 23 : Progress in prevention and response in fishing vessel safety. Wordwide problems and challenges in the industry. Tuesday, October 24 : Innovative approaches to investigating and preventing fishing vessel casualties. Fishermen's perceptions of risk. Successful intervention programs. Wednesday, October 25 : Hazard analysis and injury surveillance. Safety training for fishermen. Late breaking presentations. Poster presentations
Summary: Fishing is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. The International Labor Organization (ILO) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimate that the fishing industry experiences 24'000 deaths and as many as 24 million non-fatal injuries each year worldwide. The fatality rate for the world's fishermen is estimated (ILO) to be 80/100'000 workers/year. Commercial fishermen are exposed to environmental risk from the elements. They are also vulnerable to injuries from equipment, and from unstable workplatforms on the fishing vessels. NIOSH has worked closely with the Coast Guard and other agencies to identify and address risk factors for death and injury in the commercial fishing industry. The proceedings reflect here extensive safety recommendations, projects and programs that have been presented and discussed.
