Moxie Media’s Maritime Confined Space Course
This maritime confined space program trains workers to recognize, evaluate, and control the hazards in enclosed spaces on marine vessels.
Maritime workers and crew members frequently face danger in confined spaces on the job. There are physical hazards like fires, explosions, and falls. But a confined space also poses risk due to the atmosphere.
Work on vessels and in maritime facilities often involves entering tanks and holds. However, entry without first ensuring safe conditions, can lead to suffocation or death.
There are three main atmospheric dangers in confined/enclosed spaces:
• Oxygen levels that are lower than 19.5 percent can cause loss of awareness and even death. Likewise oxygen levels greater than 22 percent can allow a fire to start easily and burn at a faster than normal rate.
• Toxic chemicals can be dangerous, affecting workers’ skin, eyes, and breathing. And, in fact, exposure to chemicals at high levels or for long periods can be fatal.
• Flammable or combustible gases or liquids can result in an explosion if a spark is introduced.
Complete Maritime Confined Space Training
Moxie’s maritime confined space online course teaches workers to understand and recognize the hazards of a confined space. Also it trains workers to evaluate the conditions of a confined space. Furthermore, it educates employees about precautions that can be taken to control conditions in a maritime enclosed space.
Our maritime confined space training course includes the following topics (and more):
- Oxygen deficiency
- IDLH atmospheres
- Flammable vapors
- Toxic gases
- Portable instruments used to test for gases and vapors
- Marine chemist’s certificates
Ensuring Safe Entry
Ventilation and respiratory protection are certainly two of the most effective measures for maintaining safe working conditions in a confined space. This course teaches workers about both ventilation methods and proper use of breathing apparatus. The course also stresses the danger of rescue from a confined space and the importance of only specially trained personnel carrying out rescue.
Upon completing the program, students will have the knowledge to apply the practices necessary to maintain safe entry, work, and exit conditions in a maritime confined space.
