||2006, Vol.57, No.1/4, p.114-126.
||This article gives an overview of the ILO's standards concerning occupational safety and health, of the specific standards concerning work on board fishing vessels and of the work to develop a new Convention and Recommendation on Work in the Fishing Sector. It includes proposed requirements and guidance concerning risk assessment. Examples are provided of how risk assessment has been used in ILO instruments, in European Union Directives concerning the fishing sector and in national laws, regulations and practice in this sector. The objective of this article is to stimulate debate on how risk assessment on fishing vessels could be promoted worldwide, taking into account differing levels of development and the considerable diversity of fishing.
