National Safety Council To Hold Workshops

The Marine Section of the National Safety Council Business and Industry Division has scheduled technical sessions, meetings and an Open Workshop Seminar on Shipyard Safety Issues.

This meeting of the Shipyard Group is in conjunction with the National Safety Congress in Orlando, which is scheduled to occur from October 15-20.

The advantage of the Marine Section Meetings at the National Safety Congress is the access to the many safety professionals, compliance officers, safety equipment suppliers, and all industry technical sessions involved with the National Safety Congress and Exposition. The Congress is holding 154 safety and health technical sessions in conjunction with a significant exposition floor with a hands on view of every conceivable safety and health device or program. The technical sessions are chosen for the specific applicability to the improvement of any company's safety and health program and professional development for the 20,000 safety professionals expected to attend.

The Marine Section is sponsoring six technical sessions and is holding two forum type workshops one for the Ocean Transport Group and one for the Shipyard Group. Potential topics scheduled for discussion at the conference include: Statistics, Ergonomics, OSHA Shipyard assistance programs, Competent Person Improvement, fall protection, hazardous energy control, ship repair contractor audits and training.
