The activity of sea fishing involves a series of unfavorable conditions that can affect the health and safety of workers. The contribution presented here deepens the analysis of some occupational hazards such as: "ergonomics of workstations, manual handling of loads, awkward postures, repetitive movements of the upper limb." The work is based on local experience gained in the Marche region, namely in the ports of Ancona and San Benedetto del Tronto (75% of all marine fishing Marche). The assessment of these risks turn based on methodologies and NIOSH OCRA has led to the design and implementation of solutions to improve both organizational and technical. These solutions were transferred on to boats in the fleet Marche. Source
