Title: Health and safety at work code of practice for fisheries personnel engaged in field and laboratory work
Author: National Rivers Authority Severn-Trent Region
Document Type: Monograph
Fisheries personnel are called upon to undertake a wide variety of tasks, including law enforcement and patrol duties, repair and maintenance of equipment, varied field work, laboratory work and various vehicle driving duties. Many of these tasks require working in isolated places and sometimes in situations which may include an element of risk. Some aspects of fisheries work (e.g. law enforcement) necessarily involve an acceptance of such an element. Safety legislation "places responsibility on both employers and employees. This booklet outlines the main responsibilities. It also describes some of the dangers likely to be encountered by Fisheries personnel and sets out the procedures and steps to be taken to avoid or minimise the risks involved. In all cases a measure of sound common sense and a professional approach by the person concerned is essential. Personnel are not expected to, nor should they, take action which may place themselves or colleagues or others in danger.
