Seafish launches "Sea You Home Safe" campaign
Article Date: 2014-03-06
Today Seafish have launched the ‘Sea You Home Safe’ campaign. This campaign encourages fishermen to wear a Personal Flotation Device (PFD) at sea while working on open decks.
Fishing is the most dangerous peacetime profession, with 25% of fishermen in the UK claiming they have had an incident at sea which put their life at risk. One of the most effective ways of improving the chances of surviving falling overboard (or recovering the body, if the worst should happen) is to wear a Personal Flotation Device, known as a PFD.
The campaign is all about encouraging fishermen to wear a PFD when they are working on an open deck. Please see the link below for more information:
