Jerry Dzugan, director of the Alaska Marine Safety Education Association (AMSEA) talks about upcoming workshops in Sitka, including one on ergonomic injury prevention for commercial fishermen. AMSEA will also be holding fishing vessel drill conductor training. The drill classes, which AMSEA has been running for over 20 years, aim to familiarize fishermen, crew and family members with safety and survival equipment and emergency procedures on fishing vessels, as well as training in how to conduct the required monthly drills.
The workshop on ergonomic injury prevention will be held at Harrigan Centennial Hall, from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, March 20, and again on May 22 and June 12. The next drill class will be held Wednesday, March 19, 8 a.m.-7 p.m. at NSRAA. More information and a full schedule of classes can be found at amsea.org or by calling 907-747-3287.
