Commercial fishing vessels in the cold, remote waters of Alaska are required to carry equipment to survive vessel sinkings. NIOSH examined the importance of this lifesaving equipment and the need for marine safety training in a recent study published in the journal Safety Science.

Investigators looked at the events surrounding the sinking of 187 fishing vessels off the Alaskan coast during 2000 to 2014. They obtained the information from the NIOSH Commercial Fishing Incident Database, which is a surveillance system of work-related deaths and vessel disasters in the U.S. fishing industry. Among the 617 crewmembers onboard these sinking vessels, 557 survived and 60 died.



The investigators found several characteristics associated with surviving a fishing vessel sinking. When crewmembers spent any length of time in the water before rescue, characteristics that predicted survival were being within three miles of shore at the time of sinking, the sinking being unrelated to weather, and the crewmember entering a life raft. When immersion in the water exceeded 30 minutes, these characteristics changed somewhat. In addition to entering a life raft, wearing an immersion suit increased the odds of survival. As with survival after any time spent in the water, survival post 30 minutes increased when weather did not cause the sinking, while distance from shore was not associated with survival in these situations.

These findings underscore the importance of having access to life-saving equipment onboard fishing vessels and training to use it properly. NIOSH recommends that crewmembers take a marine safety class at least once every 5 years, wear a personal flotation device (PFD) whenever on deck, and participate in monthly safety drills. A complete list of recommendations for crewmembers and vessel owners and operators is available on the NIOSH website.

How Dry Hands Positively

8/11/2018 10:51 AM

KEEPING HANDS DRY WILL LEAD TO BETTER COMFORT, PRODUCTIVITY AND COMPLIANCE

Providing a glove solution that keeps hands dry will deliver superior worker comfort, leading to greater productivity, and improve workplace safety compliance.



Skin conditions arising from wet hands can be the result of direct contact with water, chemicals and other liquids. Or through increased perspiration rates caused by high ambient temperatures and hand protection solutions constructed from non-breathable materials. A range of occupations and industries are susceptible to skin conditions, particularly when individuals are required to undertake wet work, involving ongoing contact with liquids or frequent hand washing. Protective gloves are the obvious defence against regular liquid contact, with hand protection designed specifically to create a suitable barrier between skin and any unwanted substances.

In many instances, the defence of hand protection itself can lead to an unwelcome scenario, as liquid build-up inside the glove can be as damaging as external exposure. Some circumstances leave workers significantly exposed to heat and perspiration build-up, particularly when chemical protective gloves are worn, as they usually feature a polymer construction that does not promote effective moisture absorption and heat dissipation.

Working in hot climates can further exacerbate the problem, as hands quickly heat up and start to perspire under higher ambient temperatures. Skin diseases aside, a common response to hot and sweaty hands – brought about by improper PPE selection – is for workers to simply remove their gloves, opening them up to the risk of injury.
