NAPVO Releases Safety Manual

The release of the National Association of Passenger Vessel Owners' (NAPVO) Safety and Training Program Manual has been announced by Coe Sherrard, NAPVO's president.

"This document serves as a comprehensive manual to train crew members about the safe operation of small passenger vessels. It was developed by the Safety and Training Committee, with the assistance of Marsh and McLennan and should be a valuable addition to any company's training program, Mr. Sherrard said.

The program addresses such topics as development of a safety policy statement, safety inspections, employee hazard recognition, incident reporting, ship personnel responsibilities, and operations. The manual was designed to help establish a basic set of operating and training guidelines for deckhands, captains, restaurant and entertainment personnel and may be used to develop a formal written company training program.

Copies of the manual have been provided free to all NAPVO members.

Additional copies may be ordered at a cost of $10 each. To order, contact Marsh and McLennan, 10 South Broadway, St. Louis, Mo.
