What gets you back #HomeAndDry?

The law on commercial fishing has changed. Get on board to find out what you can do to get back to your loved ones home and dry. 

With ILO Working In Fishing Convention (ILO188) now in force, there are additional health and safety responsibilities on all commercial fishing vessel owners and skippers for themselves and their crew.

The Home & Dry campaign aims to connect and engage with fishermen on the issues of staying safe at sea. The purpose of this site is to act as an information hub, a collection of all the relevant safety information to help members of the commercial fishing industry get access to sea safety training, guidance and technical expertise. It’s here to make the transition to safer fishing simple.
