The highest injury incidence rates were among the younger fisheries workers and during the winter… Expand

TLDR
Rough weather, non-seaworthy vessels, inadequate use of personal flotation devices, and inexperience were associated with many of the fatal incidents, and improved vessel and equipment maintenance, better training of workers, greater use of Personal Flotation Devices, and development of improved clothing and personalFlotation devices are recommended.

TLDR
The association between fatal accidents other than at sea and length of employment as seamen indicates that seamen are modified by their occupation towards hazardous behaviour or a risky lifestyle. Expand
