Workplace Safety

Many aquaculture tasks border on dangerous. Working in and around water, working alone and sometimes at night compounds that danger. The fact is, slips, trips, and falls are major causes of injury.

Although it’s impossible to eliminate dangerous tasks, Poseidon Ocean Systems designs net pens and cages to maximize safety and ensure that safety standards are met throughout the world.

For example, to minimize the risk of trips and falls we design cage systems with feed line piping and aeration hoses under the decking. This allows workers to perform their daily tasks safely and efficiently. Furthermore, our aeration/oxygen panels are certified by Technical Safety BC.
