Abstract
Surveillance information from the Alaska Trauma Registry has assisted in identifying and prioritizing causes of nonfatal injuries on the deck of crab fishing vessels. This first phase has led the way to specific injury prevention recommendations. The second phase is currently focusing on fisheries other than Bering Sea crab fishing in Alaskan waters. Collaboration between NIOSH, ]MC, US Coast Guard, University of Utah School of Engineering, and the fishing industry is continuing to identify and recommend specific injury prevention measures for this dangerous industry.
