Fisher Maritime To Hold
Eight Workshops On
A series of eight one-day work- shops on the "Fundamentals of
Liability Avoidance for Marine and Small Craft Management and
Engineering" will be given across the nation this spring. The work- shops will discuss many of the forms of liabilities that arise in each of construction, design, re- pair, 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 work- shops.
Some of the major topics cov- ered in each workshop include: court-accepted definitions of de- fects, evaluating design alterna- tives for safety, liability for ves- sel inspection, adequacy of insur- ance coverages, court interpreta- tions of "safe" designs, operat- ing and maintenance manuals, and incoming materials inspec- tions.
The workshops will also ad- dress purchase orders, files and record keeping, repairer's liabil- ity for non-performed work, the dangers of adhering to industry standards, hidden warranties giv- en by builders, and the "flow" of potential liability from supplier to installer.
