Created by the Fishing Industry Safety Group (FISG), the Home & Dry campaign aims to connect and engage with fishermen on the issues of staying safe at sea.
The purpose of the new website https://www.homeanddry.uk/ is to act as an information hub, a collection of all the relevant safety information to help members of the commercial fishing industry get access to sea safety training, guidance and technical expertise. It’s here to make the transition to safer fishing simple.
Check if you are complying with the law by visiting https://www.homeanddry.uk/ and see below.
HOW TO COMPLY WITH ILO 188
Owners of UK-flagged fishing vessels are responsible for basic health and safety on board their boats, safe working practices and safety equipment
Note - The FISG is a stakeholder group, whose aim is to improve the safety of commercial fishing at sea. Its ultimate goal is zero preventable deaths at sea and to reduce the number of serious accidents and vessels lost at sea due to health and safety issues. The FISG is made up of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), Seafish, National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations (NFFO), Scottish Fishermen’s Federation (SFF), Northern Ireland Fishermen’s Federation (NIFF), Welsh Fishermen’s Association – Cymdeithas Pysgotwyr Cymru (WFA-CPC), the RNLI and the Shipbuilders & Shiprepairers Association (SSA).
The Home and Dry campaign is supported by Trinity House.
