This instructive course provides mariners with the knowledge and awareness to take immediate action upon encountering an accident or other medical emergency—ideal training for compliance with the AWO RCP and STCW guidelines. The program was shot on location aboard vessels and emphasizes first aid for injuries and illnesses typical of a workboat environment.
This training provides maritime and facility personnel with information that assists in fulfilling the U.S. Coast Guard requirements found in 46 CFR 39.1011.These USCG vapor control safety regulations apply to tank ships, tank barges, and transfer facilities that use vapor control systems or VCS to collect and control cargo vapors emitted to or from a vessel’s cargo tanks during transfers.
This program was developed to provide mariners with awareness level knowledge and understanding of the hazards and the preventative measures required when transferring, transporting or storing Benzene cargos. This training fulfills the requirements of the American Waterways Operators Responsible Carriers (RCP) (RCP V-C-1f-2) and the USCG 46 CFR 197.565 (b).
The United States Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued 29 CFR 1910.134 (g)(3) “Procedures for IDLH Atmospheres” requires a second worker to stand by for emergency response, outside the area where there is the potential for an IDLH atmosphere. This second worker, the breathing air “bottle watch,” must have a direct line of communication with the worker at risk.
Shot on location using industry best practices, this course instructs viewers on the roles and responsibilities of the bottle watch when transferring cargos that have the potential to reach IDLH concentrations in the workplace. Some of these basic duties will include ensuring adequate air volume and flow, preventing fouling and tangling of airlines, maintaining continual visual and verbal contact with the tankerman and emergency response procedures. This program is recommended to accompany hands on training for both standby “bottle watch” personnel, as well as those using supplied air respirators.
This refresher training prepares anyone working in or around confined spaces to recognize, evaluate, and control the environment of a confined space. Presented with graphics, text, and complete narration, this training explains how to recognize and understand atmospheric and physical hazards within confined spaces.
This program has been developed to emphasize the importance of emergency response drills, and share some tips on how to make your onboard drills more effective. More often than not, the crew of a vessel or offshore facility must rely on their own capabilities in an emergency. There probably won’t be any help in close proximity during an emergency. So, you are the first responders.
