WBUR reports that more lobstermen in New England are wearing life jackets while they work. It’s thanks to a research project from The Northeast Center for Occupational Health and Safety. Over the past few years, researchers surveyed and recruited 181 lobstermen to test out different styles and used their feedback to redesign the jackets so that they worked for their needs. In all, the project distributed 1,087 new life jackets.
