“The new syllabus has been created to meet the requirements of both the IMDG Code & the Workboat Code(s) and reviewed by the MCA” explains Kerrie Forster, Workboat Association CEO.
The Workboat Association is proud to launch it’s Training Syllabus for the Carriage of Dangerous Goods on Workboats: August 2021.
Targeted at both those working on board Workboats and those ashore who are concerned with the transportation of Dangerous Goods on board Workboats, the training covers;
– Familiarisation with the rules governing the carriage of dangerous goods by sea, (IMDG) Code.
– The use and structure of the IMDG Code
– The documentation and rules specific to the carriage of Dangerous Goods on board Workboats
– Industry Best Practice
Training Providers and Vessel Operators can become recognised by the Workboat Association for providing the half-day training and subsequently use the official [bespoke] WA stamp on their certification to identify that the course meets the requirements of the WA syllabus.
The intention is to fill a gap within sector training with specific and relevant information related to the Carriage of Dangerous Goods at Sea for the small commercial vessel industry, the concept was first developed following an Offshore Wind Safety Forum where many industry stakeholders (including clients, vessel operators and regulators) identified a lack of suitable understanding specific to the common operations of the modern Workboat sector.
