    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 employers have a duty of care to protect their employees from harm in the fishing industry. Where this has not taken place, an accident lawyer specialist 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 accident 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.
