Designing safer maritime and coastal infrastructures for Atlantic Canada
Safety Work Packages are addressing critical needs for proactively designing maritime and coastal infrastructure for Atlantic Canadian industries, coastal communities, and workers that is both safer and less environmentally damaging. Maritime work is among the most hazardous in the world. Climate, ocean, coastal, and industrial change will create unique challenges for the health and safety of seafarers, fish harvesters, and workers in coastal ports and facilities such as aquaculture, including for those commuting to and from remote locations. These challenges need to be addressed while simultaneously reducing the environmental hazards associated with these infrastructures.
