Workshop aims to help commercial fishermen

The Alaska Marine Safety Education Association holds a free injury prevention workshop, “Strains, Sprains and Pains: Ergonomic Injury Prevention for Commercial Fishermen,” from 6-7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Best Western Bidarka Inn

Participants will learn about ways to avoid musculoskeletal problems common in commercial fishing and share ideas on ergonomic changes that fishermen have made on their vessels. Fishermen may bring a mat to practice some exercises before, during and after the season. 

This workshop is free to commercial fishermen. To register, contact AMSEA at 907-747-3287.
