What gets you back #HomeAndDry?

The Home and Dry fishing safety campaign was created with support from the fishing industry, to share vital messages about safety at sea, and help all fishermen get back to their families, home and dry. 

Falling overboard is one of the biggest causes of fatalities in commercial fishing. Our man overboard campaign aims to help vessel owners, skippers, and crew members improve their safety practices to reduce the risk of going overboard in the first place.

These three simple steps, if actioned today, can save lives.

  1. Assess the risks

    Do your written risk assessment. What can you do to prevent someone from falling overboard?

    Find out how to do a risk assessment
  2. Do your drills

    Practise how you would recover someone from the water. It’s harder than you think and speed is of the essence.

    Learn about drills
  3. Wear a PFD

    Always wear a PFD on deck. Wear it correctly, according to the instructions. Wearing a PLB is also highly recommended
