    Alnmouth is a village in Northumberland, England, and is located on the coast at the mouth of the River Aln. Historically an important trading port, the village developed due to a thriving grain export business, and also had links to smuggling and the fishing industry.

    In 1860 the village was selected as one of 14 weather stations by the Duke of Northumberland, in his role of President of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. The barometer and other weather readings were kept on display, available to inform the general public as to the likely weather forecast. This served to assist fishermen in their day to day activities, and to attempt to prevent losses at sea. To this day, the Alnmouth barometer remains on display in a cottage window on the main street.

    Health and safety in the fishing industry

    The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) is responsible for enforcing safety regulations on board fishing vessels. In addition to this, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) legislations must be followed during the loading and unloading of fishing vessels. The stringent health and safety guidelines put in place by these agencies reflect the hazardous nature of the fishing industry.

    All employees have a duty of care to protect their employees from harm in the fishing industry. Where this has not taken place, an injury lawyer in Alnmouth may be required by the injured employee. In the fishing industry, it is vital that employers take responsibility to ensure that their workers are sufficiently trained to be able to work in the hazardous working environment of a fishing vessel. They must also ensure that safety protection equipment is provided, and that all machinery is maintained to a safe standard.

    Do you need the help of an injury lawyer in Alnmouth?

    If you have been injured at work, whether in the fishing industry or not, then you could be entitled to a compensation pay-out. Your accident must have taken place in the last 3 years, and you must be able to show that your employer was negligent for your injuries.
