As lobster season starts, the government is urging fishermen to stay safe. In 2010, nearly 400 people working in the fishing industry were injured on the job, with 150 suffering serious injuries that resulted in time lost from work. In the last three years alone, 23 people have died while working in this industry. While injuries related to weather, conditions at sea and overloaded boats are often serious and tragic, sprains and strains are common and financially costly.
