Course Description:

This course emphasizes worker awareness of safety and health hazards in Shipyard Employment. This training is designed to help shipyard workers identify typical hazards in their workplace and how to avoid injuries thru proactive knowledge. Our instructors are OSHA authorized instructors and have numerous years of boilerplate working experience in the maritime industry. A comprehensive training manual/CD is provided for participant future reference.

OSHA recommends this course as part of the training needed to protect workers in the Maritime industry.Workers may need additional training in the hazards related to non shipyard worksites. This course is not intended to replace site-specific training, nor limit the need for additional training.

This course requires ten hours of actual training. It is generally given over two days with the first day providing seven hours of actual training and the second day adjoining by lunchtime.
