Hazard Communication for the Workboat Industries (HAZCOM)
This informative program educates maritime crews aboard “workboats” on the importance of properly recognizing and safely working with chemicals and hazardous materials commonly encountered aboard vessels. Maritime employers have the responsibility to provide vessel crews information regarding the safe use, handling and storage of chemicals and products used in daily operations. Cleaners, solvents, paints, fuels and lubricants are all chemicals that crews handle regularly when performing maintenance and housekeeping duties.
This program is intended to heighten crew awareness about the potential hazards of working with chemicals. It will also inform them where to find product hazard information, and more importantly, how to utilize this information. Length: 16 minutes
