Programs and Services

Organizing local Programs & Services that improve the health, safety, and economic security of fishermen and their families is something we work on all year long. These Programs & Services can sometimes come together quickly, so please check back often to see what’s happening near you.

First-Aid/CPR/Ergonomics Training - Gloucester

  • Location: MFP Office - 2 Blackburn Center, Gloucester, MA, 01930
  • Date: December 28, 2017

CPR/First Aid Certification will be offered by FPSS in conjunction with an ergonomics training for fishermen. Ergonomics is the science of adapting workstations, tools, equipment, and work methods for more efficient, comfortable and error-free use by people. This course was designed especially for commercial fishermen. Learn how to improve ergonomics on your fishing vessel! You will learn ways to reduce pain and injury to your body through more efficient work practices (efficiency = more fish!).

The cost of the CPR course is $25.00 payable via cash or check on the day of the seminar. The ergonomics class is FREE. The two classes are conveniently offered in the same session.

Snacks are included!

Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the training.
