AMSEA Begins Offering Mariner's CPR & First Aid!

AMSEA is now providing an 8.5 hour Mariner's CPR/First Aid course that meets USCG regulatory requirements. Candidates completing the course receive a certification card that is valid for two years. This course differs significantly from the typical urban-based courses. It is geared toward assessing and treating patients in the prolonged care, delayed evacuation, hazardous settings often encountered for those working at sea. The course utilizes a hands-on, scenario based teaching approach with an emphasis on improvised medical gear that can commonly be found onboard a vessel. In the end, students will be able to better assess what is serious and what's not serious in regards to their patient

USCG Marine Safety Bulletin

Last month the United States Coast Guard put out a bulletin on the Implementation of New Requirements for Commercial Fishing Vessels. The purpose of this Bulletin is to remind the commercial fishing industry about safety and equipment requirements established by the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010 and the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2012. There is information about Mandatory Dockside Safety Examinations, Survival Craft, Newly-Built Vessels, Load Lines and Alternate Safety Programs. Read the full bulletin here.

Alaska Non-Profit Educates Fishermen on the Power of Ergonomics

From KBBI's Quinton Chandler in Homer... That word ergonomics can be hard to get your head around. “It sounds like economics or something that doesn’t affect people so much. It’s hard to understand,” says Dzugan. AMSEA’s Executive Director Jerry Dzugan says they had to come up with a more intuitive name for their workshops. They title the sessions: Strains, Sprains, and Pains. Three things Dugan says fishermen understand all too well. Read more and listen at #ergonomics #dzugan #news
