||Simple solutions for reduced fish farm hazards
||2nd Quarter 2009, Vol.14, No.2, p.150-156. Illus. 20 ref.
||The fish farming sector presents many of the same hazards as other types of farming, but also poses additional hazards associated with water impoundments and night-time work. This article describes some simple measures to reduce or eliminate hazards on fish farms, based on interviews of personnel working on the farms and workplace inspections. The measures address the main hazards encountered on fish farms, namely electrical shocks, drowning, slips, trips and falls and sprains, as well as chemical, fire and explosion hazards.
