This course is designed for personnel in the private sector interested in teaching the 10- and 30-hour maritime safety and health outreach program to their employees and other interested groups.
Special emphasis is placed on those topics that are required in the 10- and 30-hour programs as well as on those that are the most hazardous, using OSHA standards as a guide. Course participants are briefed on effective instructional approaches and the effective use of visual aids and handouts.
