FISH Safety Foundation
Improving Health & Safety in the Fishing Industry
The FISH Safety Foundation is a Registered Charitable Trust dedicated to improving Health & Safety outcomes across the International Fishing Industry. The Foundation was established as the result of over 20 years of work, training and research within the maritime sector.
As an independent, international organisation engaged in safety promotion through focused research, advocacy, education, publishing and consultancy services, dedicated to improving health & safety standards in the Fishing Industry – an industry recognised as the worlds’ most hazardous.
The Foundation or FISH (Fishing Industry Safety & Health) aims to be recognised as the safety “think tank” of the industry, by identifying the world’s “best practice” standards and promoting these in the Local, Regional and International Fishing Industries.
Based on our industry experience developing and implementing safety management systems over the past 25 years, we have launched a new initiative. A practical, risk-based Safety Management System (SMS) for Fishing Vessels. This program has been designed to facilitate the easy implementation of a systematic safety management program onboard.
