NFPA 306: Standard for the Control of Gas Hazards on Vessels, 2009 Edition
|Item # 30609|
Apply the 2009 NFPA 306 to reduce fire and explosion risks aboard marine vessels and in shipyards.
Essential to fire and life safety, NFPA 306: Standard for the Control of Gas Hazards on Vessels provides minimum requirements and conditions for use in determining that a space or area on a vessel, or in a shipyard or ship repair facility, is safe for entry or work. It specifies safety requirements for vessels carrying or burning as fuel flammable or combustible liquids, and also applies to vessels carrying or having carried flammable compressed gases, chemicals in bulk, or other products capable of creating a hazardous condition. NFPA 306 is the standard of practice that NFPA®-certificated Marine Chemists must follow in carrying out their duties where required by regulations of the U.S. Department of Labor/ OSHA and the U.S. Coast Guard.
The 2009 edition is based on new data and critical lessons learned:
- Revised definition of adjacent spaces now includes areas affected by hot work and where slag, products of combustion, or sparks would be expected to fall or accumulate.
- The term "vessel" is expanded to include floating structures not primarily designed as a means of transportation on water such as offshore drilling, production, and/or storage vessels.
- Added definitions address the terms host employer, contract employer, and multi-employer workplace
Also includes revised requirements necessary for obtaining a Marine Chemist's Certificate and the requirements for maintaining the Certificate. This edition of NFPA 306 is essential for everyone concerned with or responsible for marine fire and life safety or contracting aboard marine vessels or in shipyards. (Softbound, 22 pp., 2009)
