National Fishing Industry Safety and Health Workshop

CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) will sponsor the National Fishing Industry Safety and Health (FISH) Workshop October 9-11, 1992, in Anchorage, Alaska. The FISH workshop will provide fishing industry employers and workers, scientists, and government representatives an overview of national and local efforts to understand the risks involved in commercial fishing and to develop safety solutions to reduce the personal losses and severe economic burdens characteristic of this industry. The workshop's goals are to increase awareness about fishing safety, build cooperation, share information and experiences, and encourage action to prevent injury and disease that result from working in this industry.

There is no registration fee. Additional information and the workshop program are available from Alaska Activity, Division of Safety Research, NIOSH, telephone (907) 271-2382.
