This report is the result of the identification of gaps in occupation health and safety (OHS) data for the fishing industry by the Collaborative Partnership for Farming and Fishing Health and Safety Program.
The key finding is that a lack of awareness of occupational health and safety, and a culture of safety, still fails to be effectively dealt with across all States of Australia.
The primary beneficiaries of this research are the commercial fishing industry, research and funding providers.
