Fishing Partnership is pleased to offer CPR/1st Aid & Ergonomics training and, to support our communities, we are presenting Opioid Awareness training.

This special course was designed especially for commercial fishermen. Learn how to improve your ergonomics on your fishing vessel! You will learn ways to reduce pain and injury to your body through more efficient work practices (efficiency = more fish!).

Fishing Vessel Stability Workshop - Plymouth, MA

  • Location: Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, 134 Court Street, Plymouth, MA, 02360
  • Date: January 23, 2020
  • Time: 09:00am - 04:00pm

GET TRAINED IN VESSEL STABILITY

Between 2010 – 2014, five fishermen on the East Coast lost their lives on unstable or flooding vessels. Our Vessel Stability Awareness workshop prepares attendees to respond to these situations by incorporating practical information with hands-on training. Attendees will review case studies of actual fishing vessel accidents caused by inattention and other unsafe practices. Though larger vessels with multiple compartments are what first comes to mind when thinking of stability, the principles are applicable to ALL vessels, especially for flooding control and prevention.

This workshop provides practical information and hands-on training on vessel stability and emergency responses to flooding problems which cause many casualties. It is oriented toward the commercial fishing environment and is designed to meet future training requirements for commercial fishermen.

Topics covered include:

Requirements & Responsibilities
Stability Terminology
Stability Principles & the Stability Curve
Operational Considerations
Understanding Stability Reports
Flooding Control & Prevention

Please contact Lori Caron at 781-635-0011 to sign up, or you can register below.
