This course is designed for individuals interested in teaching the 10- and 30-hour Maritime safety and health Outreach Training Program to their employees and other interested groups. Special emphasis is placed on those topics required in the 10- and 30-hour Outreach Training Program as well as the most hazardous in the maritime industry using OSHA Maritime Standards as a guide. Students are briefed on effective instructional approaches and use of visual aids and handouts. This course allows the student to become a trainer in the Outreach Training Program, to conduct 10- and 30-hour maritime classes in shipyard employment, marine terminals, and longshoring, and to issue cards to participants after verifying course completion. Students in OSHA #5400 Trainer Course in OSHA Standards for the Maritime Industry who wish to participate as authorized Outreach Trainer Program trainers in the OSHA Outreach Training Program must successfully prepare a presentation on an assigned OSHA maritime industry Outreach Training Program topic individually or as part of a group and successfully pass a written exam at the end of the course.
- Students must successfully complete the OSHA #5410 Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Maritime Industry no later than seven (7) years prior to completing the trainer course.
- Have five (5) years of maritime industry safety experience. Please note that “working safely” in the industry does not meet the safety experience requirement.
A bachelor’s degree (or higher) in occupational safety and health, a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) or a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) designation may be substituted for two (2) years of work related experience.
Students should obtain guidance on whether they meet the prerequisites from the OSHA Training Institute Education Center where they intend to receive the training.
Authorized OSHA Outreach Training Program trainers are required to attend OSHA #5402 Maritime Industry Trainer Update Courses at least once every four (4) years to maintain their trainer status. The OSHA #5400 Trainer Course in Occupation Safety and Health Standards for the Maritime Industry can also be used to maintain a trainer’s authorized status.
