Having an active lifestyle is one of the best ways to stay healthy, and for the residents of Aberdeenshire the rich port environment helps to keep workers active. However, this coastal workforce is therefore open to unfortunate accidents in Peterhead, the town with the largest population in the area. A Peterhead accident at work can be extremely dangerous if they are associated with work on boats and at the port. The seafaring boats create a busy and potentially dangerous environment, which is why workplace negligence can have catastrophic results.
