|April/May 2017: Maintenance and Safety |
How do I look for safety concerns in my marina and how do I manage these risks? This discussion will give you a number of examples of things that can hurt or kill people and these are things you walk past every day. Have different employees tour your facilities looking for boats or boaters not living within your own marina rules and regulations. Do you have an Emergency Management Plan for the marina; this plan can include things like fires, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, shootings, medical emergencies, or any other number of things? Do I have a well maintained marina and could it be improved?

TBD: OSHA Standards for Industrial Forklift, Marine Forklift & Marine Travelift
Are you and your employees OSHA certified to operate industrial forklifts, Marine forklifts or Marine travelifts? OSHA compliant training requires three key steps: #1 classroom training, #2 each employee / operator must complete a practical exercise on the equipment and #3 the practical must occur at the place of employment not off site (the practical session will be scheduled at your facility). At the end of this course, your employee will be issued an OSHA compliant certification that is valid for 3 years—OSHA is out there looking for non-compliant marinas and boat yards as you know the fines are expensive.
