1. Fire Extinguisher Use

This course is designed to provide the participant with a knowledge of fire extinguishers and fire classifications, and what is the appropriate extinguisher to use. This is a hybrid course with practical application in live fire training evolutions using real extinguishers.

2. HazMat Awareness

This course is intended to provide the necessary training and familiarity for persons working in industries with hazardous materials present. Emphasis is on placard recognition, hazard identification, and PPE.

9. Fork-Lift Safety

Forklifts, whether they are onboard or shoreside, represent a serious risk if used incorrectly. This course discusses the safety hazards, inspections, checklists, operational safety, start up and use, stability, picking up and handling loads, tipping points and fulcrum, driving with a load, stacking and unstacking, inclines, storage, servicing, risk to pedestrians and by standers, and general safety. This course is a must for anyone assigned operational duties with a fork-lift.s

10. Site Specific Emergency Action Plans

Emergency Action Plans are created to put into application the knowledge gained during classes. On-site evaluations, risk assessments, equipment availability, resources, level of training, and hazards are all components of an EAP. Our staff work with vessel operators and shoreside terminals to identify and create a viable plan that can be carried out by the personnel assigned by the company. Specific training and equipment recommendations may be made to better implement the plan and reduce the operational risks to the participants. We have completed EAPs as part of our Consulting and Analysis work, please contact us to discuss your particular needs.
