Abstract
Dr. George Conway, Chief, NIOSH Alaska Field Station, presented the Workshop Charge. Dr. Conway stated that not only is he concerned about the safety of fishermen, but also those who attempt to save fishermen in trouble, the search and rescue (SAR) personnel of the Coast Guard. Additionally, he emphasized that approximately the same number of fishermen have to be rescued annually as in the past, and that more emphasis has to be placed on preventing the fishermen from becoming immersed in Alaska's icy waters in the first place.
