Maritime Industry Summary
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Outreach Training Program for Maritime Industry teaches maritime industry workers about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify, abate, avoid and prevent job related hazards.
This training program is voluntary. Some jurisdictions, employers, and unions require Maritime Industry outreach training to work on maritime sites and to fulfill their safety training goals, OSHA still considers the program voluntary. Workers must receive additional training on hazards specific to their job. To review OSHA’s training requirements, see OSHA Publication #2254, Training Requirements in OSHA Standards and Training Guidelines (www.osha.gov/Publications/osha2254.pdf).
In addition, many Maritime Employers utilize this training in combination with other Safety and Hazcom Programs as a part of their overall Risk Management strategy, increasing work place safety, reducing exposures and abating employee injuries, thus, having a positive long term affect on their insurance costs and financial stability.
Student course completion cards are good for five years, at which time they will expire unless updated course is taken prior to the expiration. To retain a valid 10 hour or 30 hour card, students are required to complete a Student Update Course within the five year period.
