UK safety meeting

A top-level meeting on fishing vessel safety is being held in London today.

The meeting is being hosted by Transport Minister Stephen Hammond and Fisheries Minister Richard Benyon; and attendees will include the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation (SFF), the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations, Seafish, the Marine Management Organisation, the Maritime & Coastguard Agency, and the Marine Accident Investigation Branch.

The SFF will explain the various safety initiatives already underway in the industry and seek support from all participants in the seafood industry in ensuring that the business of catching fish becomes less hazardous.

The Federation will highlight its recently pioneered Onboard Support Scheme for safety, which is currently being rolled out in Scotland. The initiative is designed to produce a friendly and usable safety management system for fishing vessels. The aim is to transform the regulatory requirement for risk assessment into a truly meaningful onboard exercise.
