This project uses existing datasets to estimate injury risk and risk factors in commercial fishing in the Pacific Northwest. We are developing a novel database to provide hazard assessments for commercial fishing stakeholders.
This project is funded by the UW Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center. More information about the RISC Fishing system can be found at Commercial Fishing Safety.
The Fishermen First Aid and Safety Training (FFAST) is a first aid class that incorporate wilderness first aid and specific work tasks/situations found on commercial fishing vessels. Training scenarios and materials are based off of collected and analyzed injury data. See the infograph here.
