My vessel, my responsibility - fishing vessels: T29-118/5-2014E-MP4

"From fishing vessels to water taxis, tugboats to police craft, small commercial vessels are a common sight on Canada’s waters. But accidents can happen at any time – and to anyone. As the operator of a small commercial vessel, it’s your responsibility to make sure your vessel operates safely and is properly equipped for emergencies. Commercial fishing is one of the most dangerous industries in Canada. Preventing accidents begins by establishing a culture of safety on your vessel – where safety is a shared responsibility between master and crew. As the vessel’s master, this means developing safety procedures and leading by example. It also means having a properly trained crew. At the start of each season, hold an orientation session to bring new members up to speed. Show them how to find and use equipment like fire extinguishers, life rafts and immersion suits. You should also cover the proper use of rigging, deck, and navigation equipment. Conducting emergency drills throughout the season – at different times and in different conditions – will ensure your crew can act on instinct should something go wrong"--Narration.
