Home and Dry has been created by the Fishing Industry Safety Group (FISG). The FISG is a stakeholder group, whose aim is to improve the safety of commercial fishing at sea. Its ultimate goal is zero preventable deaths at sea and to reduce the number of serious accidents and vessels lost at sea due to health and safety issues. The FISG is made up of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), Seafish, National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations (NFFO), Scottish Fishermen’s Federation (SFF), Northern Ireland Fishermen’s Federation (NIFF), Welsh Fishermen’s Association – Cymdeithas Pysgotwyr Cymru (WFA-CPC), the RNLI and the Shipbuilders & Shiprepairers Association (SSA).
The Home and Dry campaign is supported by Trinity House.
