MCA Roadshow at Milford Fish Docks

14 Oct 2019

Small fishing vessel owners are being encouraged to attend a roadshow this week to learn about a new Code of Practice aimed at improving safety. Over the last 10 years, 46 people have died on small fishing boats so the MAIB has made several recommendations to make the water a safer place for all fishermen.

The new Code of Practice for Small Fishing Vessels proposes new requirements in:

  • Construction, watertight and weathertight integrity
  • Stability
  • Machinery
  • Electrical installations
  • Crew protection
  • Man overboard recovery

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency roadshow will be held between 10:00-13:00 on 18th October 2019 at:

Unit 1, F Shed Food Grade Units
