Maritime industry work has traditionally been hazardous, with an injury-accident rate more than twice that of construction and general industry. As the Maritime Industry continues to boom in Alaska, there is no better time to ensure you and your colleagues are safe on the job!
OSHA 5410 covers OSHA policies, procedures, and standards for the maritime industry. Using the OSHA Maritime Standards as a guide, special emphasis is placed on those areas in the maritime industry which are most hazardous.
Upon course completion students will define maritime terms found in the OSHA Maritime Standards, identify hazards in the maritime industry and determine appropriate controls and abatement, locate OSHA Maritime Standards, policies and procedures, and describe the use of the OSHA Maritime Standards and regulations to supplement an ongoing safety and health program.
We are proud to offer training to maritime workers, as well as opportunities for maritime industry professionals to advance their careers through our Maritime Safety and Health Specialist Certificate Program or, by becoming an OSHA Outreach Trainer. Visit our website to learn more about these programs.
The upcoming training in Anchorage will also be available via videoconference at the Homer Campus of UAA Kenai Peninsula College.
