Title An analysis of the risk in the French sea fishing industry. Example of the dockside accident risk
Bibliographic information 2006, Vol.57, No.1/4, p.103-113. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract When considering the risks of fishing, one generally thinks about major risks like collisions or vessels running aground, as well as accidents caused ropes or trawling equipment. However there is little data on accidents involving fishermen while the vessel is docked in port. In France, these accidents account for about 30% of all registered injuries for the sea fishing sector. This study analyses the data on the 5074 such accidents reported between 1996 and 2005. Findings are discussed and various preventive measures are proposed.
