The observations on the existing traditional fishing vessels and the in-depth interviews to local fishers in two fishing communities in East Java, Indonesia revealed that there is relatively low level of implementation of safety fishing practices on Indonesian fishing fleet. Improving health and safety working environment on Indonesian fishing boats, in order to support the application of appropriate safety fishing practices, can be addressed by improving local fishers’ awareness on safety, adopting relevant standards and guidance for local fishers, and supporting local fishers in developing decent working environment on their fishing vessels.
