Abstrakt

The fishing industry has been the main source of income for the faroese people and has kept them alive for ages. With time, the fleet has become moderised and more effective.
Methods
Since 1994 all faroese fishermen have been signed one for every trip they have done, in 1996 they got the kvotas and in 1997-1998 they started register all fishing days.
In the period of 1972- 2014, 12.619 accidents were rapported to the faroese work accident insurance counsil, where of 4163 (33%) had happened at sea. Of these 3407 (27%) were from the fishing fleet and only 5% from the merchant fleet.
The data was from the insurance, 4280 paper forms, data entered in Excel manually, variables recoded, analyses in SPSS data program, number of days at sea available
Incidence rates calculated as number of injuries divided by the number of man-days at sea, multiplied with 100000.
Conclusions
The incidence of injuries in fishing vessels were reduced over 20 years
Probably due to the implemented safety programs
Especially the obligatory safety training for all fishermen.
There is a need to continue with the safety programs and monitoring of the injuries to learn from the past. More dataanalysis will be done for best use in prevention
