Net Flakers

You are here

Until the net flakers were funded under the FLAG programme many of the Hastings fishermen had to manually shoot, recover and fold up to three miles of fishnets! They now have something that will really improve their working conditions. An independent assessment carried out by Corporate and Public Safety Ltd. said “The installation of Net Flaking equipment will reduce or eliminate the likelihood of injury occurring and reduce the severity of injuries caused during this work activity. The reduction in manual handling will reduce repetitive strain injuries and the effects relating muscular skeletal injuries” .
