Abstract
Ms. Jennifer Lincoln, Occupational Safety and Health Specialist, NIOSH Alaska Field Station, presented "Epidemiology of Vessel Casualties and Commercial Fishing Fatalities in Alaska." Ms. Lincoln addressed three broad areas that result in commercial fishing fatalities: lost vessels (capsized/sunk), falls overboard, and diving-related events. She also stressed the importance of not just reacting to these emergencies after the fact but preventing them from occurring.
