Fatal Falls Overboard in Commercial Fishing - United States 2000-2016
Commercial fishing is one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States, with a 2016 work-related fatality rate (86.0 deaths per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers) 23 times higher than that for all U.S. workers (3.6). Sinking vessels cause the most fatalities in the industry; however, falling from a fishing vessel is a serious hazard responsible for the second highest number of commercial fishing–associated fatalities (2,3). CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) analyzed data on unintentional fatal falls overboard in the U.S. commercial fishing industry...
Prevalence of hearing loss among noise-exposed workers within the agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting sector, 2003-2012

A descriptive study of farm-related injuries presenting to emergency departments in North Carolina: 2008-2012
Farming is among the most dangerous industries for fatal and nonfatal injuries. A comprehensive agricultural injury surveillance system is absent in North Carolina (NC), and data sets traditionally used to provide estimates of nonfatal farm injuries surveillance in the United States are relatively incomplete. In the absence of a comprehensive farm injury surveillance system, individual local administrative data sources can provide a useful profile of the epidemiology of injuries in a population. The objective of this study was to use emergency department data to help describe the burden of farm...

Nonfatal occupational injuries in Norwegian farmers
BACKGROUND : Agriculture ranks among the most dangerous trades worldwide. There is, however, still a lack of knowledge on nonfatal injuries in agriculture. The aim of this study was to describe the nature and occurrence of nonfatal injuries in farmers in two counties in central Norway. METHODS : A questionnaire was sent to 7,004 farmers in Norway. We asked for information about the respondents and the farm, whether the farmer had had work-related injuries on the farm during the past 12 months, and details about the incidence and seriousness of the injury. RESULTS : A total of 2,699 respondents...
Non-fatal agricultural injuries
Surveillance in the Midwestern United States OBJECTIVES: The objective was to estimate the agriculture injury rate in in the United States. The Bureau of Labour Statistics conducts Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries and Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illness but it excludes workplaces with 10 or fewer employees or self-owned farm operations and may underestimate the agricultural injury rate. METHOD: The Central States Centre of Agricultural Safety and Health partnered with National Agriculture Statistics Service to annually administer agricultural injury survey. In 2012, 6953 surveys were...
Commercial Fishing Morbidity and Mortality U.S. Distant Water Tuna Fleet 2006-2012
The United States Coast Guard (USCG) Marine Information for Safety and Law Enforcement (MISLE) system was used as the primary source for fatality and injury data. MISLE is used to record information reported by fishing companies to the USCG on injuries, fatalities, and vessel incidents such as allision, collision, fire, flooding, and sinking events. Federal law requires companies that operate fishing vessels to report marine casualties (death, “serious injury,” material loss of property, vessel damage affecting seaworthiness or efficiency, or significant harm to the environment) to...

We investigated the distribution and characteristics of compensated occupational injuries and diseases requiring medical care in the Finnish farming population. Methods The study population consisted of 93,564 Finnish farmers, spouses, and salaried family members who were covered by the mandatory workers' compensation insurance in 2002. This population had a total of 133,207 occupational injuries and 9,148 occupational diseases over a 26-year period (1982–2008). Results Clustering...
Fatal and nonfatal injuries involving fishing vessel winches - southern shrimp fleet, United States, 2000-2011
Workers in the commercial fishing industry have the highest occupational fatality rate in the United States, nearly 35 times higher in 2011 than the rate for all U.S. workers. During 2000-2009, a total of 504 fishermen were killed in the U.S. fishing industry, most commonly by drowning as a result of vessels sinking (51%) and falls overboard (30%). Another 10% of fatalities (51 deaths) were caused by injuries sustained onboard vessels, such as entanglement in machinery. This type of fatality occurred most often in the Gulf of Mexico. To analyze fatal and nonfatal injuries involving deck winches...
Injuries in the commercial fishing fleet of Norway 2000–2011
A working fishing vessel at sea is an elaborate collection of interacting accident potentials, barely controlled. Even the deck underfoot betrays the unwary, as can every other aspect of the normal daily grind onboard, as fishers ply their trade in weather foul and fair. All elements of the vessel at sea conspire in making this the most dangerous and difficult of all professional callings, an inexplicable calling where life and limb are continually at risk. This article is based on an examination of reported occupational injuries from the Norwegian fishing fleet from 2000 to 2011. The aim is the...
