PROJECT PRL 2018: INFORMATION AND SENSITIZATION ACTIONS FOR THE PREVENTION OF PSYCHOSOCIAL RISKS IN THE FISHERIES SECTOR OF GALICIA

Foundation for fishing and shellfishing (FUNDAMAR) in its commitment to improve maritime safety in the fishing sector, has launched in 2018, with the co-financing of the Xunta de Galicia, a series of information and awareness actions for the prevention of psychosocial risks in the fishing sector of Galicia, in order to continue strengthening the preventive culture in the sector and to raise the awareness of shipowners and crews on the importance of good management of psychosocial risks in the fishing sector.

Exposure to psychosocial risk factors, together with other risk situations such as environmental conditions (lighting, temperature, noise, etc.) and safety conditions, can directly affect the ability and skill of the crew to perform tasks to board, causing, in some cases, human errors and accidents, directly influencing the occupational accidents of the fishing sector.
