The OSHA Outreach Training Program for the Maritime Industry provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in the maritime industry. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. The 10-hour class is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards. Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute to our nation’s productivity.
Confined Space Awareness Training is designed to provide employees with the understanding, knowledge, and skills necessary for the safe performance of duties. Employees must be trained when first assigned to duties in and around permit spaces; before there is a change in assigned duties; whenever there is a change in operations that presents a hazard; and whenever the permit-space entry procedures change. Certification of such training must be available for inspection by employees or their authorized representatives.
