Overview (1 of 4)
WorkSafeBC and the United Fishermen and Allied Workers' Union co-produced Beachline Safety to help introduce inexperienced beach crews to safe beachwork practices. The 30-minute training video consists of four segments that show how beachline operations work, from the beach to the seiner. The segments describe specific beachwork techniques, including how to deal safely with common problems such as jammed knots when letting go.
Note: This video was converted from a DVD produced in 1996. Some of the fishing techniques that are described are no longer practiced because of changes in fishery.
