Occupational Health Recognizing and Preventing Work-related Disease: Second Edition - Paperback

1993, ISBN: 9780316522472

Hardcover, ID: 258081246

St. Martin's Griffin, 1993. Light wear to cover with tiny mended tears, Clean tight bright unmarked text. From The pay was fabulous--a deckhand could earn $100,000 in four months--but working conditions were nightmarish. Fishing for king crab in Alaskan waters is the most dangerous occupation on earth, stresses Walker, who crewed with the crab fleet during the boom years 1976-84 and here presents bone-chilling tales about men (one woman), and the sea. Deckhands frequently worked around the clock, pushing 750-pound crab pots over a pitching deck swept with icy, stinging salt spray, enduring gale-force winds and gigantic waves. Because of the lack of privacy and sleep, irregular meals, darkness and isolation from civilization, the offshore life affects sailors mentally as well as physically. Walker gives a gripping account of the 1981 fall season, with its lost and heroic rescues. He combines his personal experiences with sailors' stories for a vivid picture of an occupation that challenges nature. Super adventure. Photos. 1991 Walker shares his experiences of crab fishing off the coast of Alaska in an interesting and informative anecdotal style. Readers will learn that the dangers that make crab fishing such a risky if highly profitable profession don't all come from the sea itself. Fear, depression, greed, and drugs have played a large role as well. "For too many caught up in the 'go to hell' lifestyle . . . there was cocaine--grams of it, ounces of it, pounds and kilos . . . ." And then the fishing industry collapsed due to a number of reasons: natural biological cycles, overfishing, large numbers of predators, disease, etc. Recommended for general collections.- Mary J.

"The Birjia-a lesser know primitive tribe of Chotanagpur plateau of Bihar are nurtured in the cradle of nature, environment is one of the important factors which influences the needs, customs, behaviour and mental make up of people, that is, the culture of people. This becomes more determining in case of the tribals who live amidst forests and for whom environment has a direct bearing on their occupation and consequently economy. The present volume highlights about the total culture of the Birjia which is expressed in terms of their interaction and inter dependence with their local niche which is reflected through social behaviour, customs, beliefs and practices."
