Occupational Health and Safety Surveillance of Gulf Seafood Workers
Commercial ocean fishing is one of the most dangerous occupations in the world. Workplace-related illnesses, injuries, and deaths are not uncommon for commercial seafood workers, and many of these adverse outcomes are avoidable in this mostly self-employed uninsured, hardworking workforce that feeds our nation.
We invite you to join us for the October session of the Southeastern Coastal Center for Agricultural Health and Safety webinar series as Dr. Andy Kane, co-director for the center, presents his research project on commercial fishery worker safety in the southeastern US. This project addresses critical gaps in our understanding of hazards and risk factors for Gulf seafood workers.
