Session Preview: Safety Aloft II: Next Steps

Leading up to Early Registration for our Annual Conference, I’ll be posting session previews.

Presenter: Captain Rick Miller, Maine Maritime Academy

Safety Aloft II: Next Steps – Last year’s Safety Aloft presentation examined current trends in equipment, recent casualties, and the physics of a fall. Safety Aloft II will look to apply what we have learned in an effort to define best practices. What are the options for equipment? How do we train, drill, and document our safety aloft efforts?


To be posted soon.
