DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2018-153
Total running time: 05:46
Entanglements in fishing gear and deck machinery are a leading cause of injuries in commercial fishing. Pat and his crew used an emergency stop (E-Stop) on their deck winch to prevent an injury to one of their deckhands while salmon seining in Alaska. Being able to stop deck machinery quickly and easily can mean the difference between a near miss, a career-ending injury, or even death.
