Injury claims in Buckie dealing for fishing industry claims

A common time for fishing-related accidents is when fishing vessels are being loaded and unloaded. An accident can occur if the condition of the vessel is inadequate or if unsafe working practices are being adopted.

Employees are at greatest danger when they are moving on and off the vessel. If floors, decks, stairs and gangways are not kept clean and clear of obstructions then slips, trips and falls can be the result. Falling into the sea is much more dangerous than falling on dry land.

Other accidents have happened because fencing has not been provided on the open sides of gangways, footways and bridges. It is not enough just to provide any old fence! They must be constructed of an appropriate material, correctly installed and maintained. The same goes for temporary ladders and rope ladders. There are only certain circumstances where it is safe to use these at all.
