Accidents at sea

One of the major accidents at sea which can be fatal is if someone falls overboard. Fishermen should wear either a life jacket or personal flotation device when on deck. Members of the crew should check their protective gear at regular intervals and report damaged or defective equipment to their skipper. Before the boat puts out to sea, all safety equipment should be checked and every necessary item should be on board.

Another common accident on board a fishing vessel is a slip, trip or fall because of a wet, slippery deck. If the anti-slip coating has worn away, it should be replaced, and spillages should be cleaned up immediately. Crew members should wear boots with non-slip soles and hold the handrail when walking around the boat.

There should be no obstacles on deck, as all equipment should be properly stowed away and secured after use. Failure to do this could result in an accident which could result in serious injuries or even death.
