Fatalities in the fishing sector is far too high and it is vital to reduce the number of fatalities significantly.
That’s according to the Chief Executive Officer of the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation Sean O’Donoghue after the Health and Safety Authority highlighted that Irish fishermen are 40 times more likely to be killed doing their job than the average worker.
Mr. O’Donoghue says one of the key things the KFO do be advocating strongly is the mandatory wearing of the life jackets.
He also says the message had to get out there that if you are going out on a vessel that you must wear a suitable life jacket.
