||The objectives of this study were to promote and contribute to improving the occupational safety and health within the fishing sector in Portugal. The study identified two distinct phases of purse seine fishing, namely activities carried out at sea, and activities conducted on land. Each day, a number of tasks are carried out, including activities on board preparing for the vessel to go to sea and the various fishing and fish preparation processes. The study evaluates the risks inherent to each activity, and proposes a number of recommendations aimed at improving safety and working conditions of fishermen.
