A series of eight one-day workshops on the "Fundamentals of Liability Avoidance for Marine and Small Craft Management and Engineering" will be given across the nation this spring. The workshops will discuss many of the forms of liabilities that arise in each of construction, design, repair, and operation.

Conducted by Fisher Maritime Transportation Counselors, the workshops will be presented in Los Angeles on April 18, Seattle on April 20, Boston on April 29, Philadelphia on May 12, New Orleans on May 17, St. Louis on May 19, Jacksonville on June 1, and Houston on June 3.

The workshops are updated from a similar series conducted in 1981 for the marine and small craft industry. Over 180 firms participated by sending one to six representatives to the workshops.

Some of the major topics covered in each workshop include: court-accepted definitions of defects, evaluating design alternatives for safety, liability for vessel inspection, adequacy of insurance coverages, court interpretations of "safe" designs, operating and maintenance manuals, and incoming materials inspections.

The workshops will also address purchase orders, files and record keeping, repairer's liability for non-performed work, the dangers of adhering to industry standards, hidden warranties given by builders, and the "flow" of potential liability from supplier to installer.

Details and registration information can be obtained from Fisher Maritime by calling (201) 763-4266 or writing to 50 South Orange Avenue, South Orange, N.J. 07079.
