The Workboat Association has published a good practice guide and it is printed and ready for distribution.
“The Carriage of Dangerous Goods on Workboats good practice guide has been developed between the industry and regulators, providing a zero to hero knowledge on both the regulations and best practice associated with the transport of Dangerous Goods by sea on board Workboats,” said Kerrie Forster, Workboat Association CEO.
Written with Seafarers, the vessel management, stakeholders and end-clients all in mind, this guide is set to be an unmissable tool from the education and training of those wishing to operate, work with or contract workboats of any nature.
The UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency, who regulate both the vessels and the operational crews working for, or in the UK, have expressed their support for the development of this guide to ensure appropriate standards of vessel operation, including the training and familiarisation of vessel crews are maintained.
Those interested in purchasing copies of the guide in hardback only can contact the Association now by email.
