Seagull launches new safety CBT modules

Seagull Maritime has added two new computer-based training (CBT) modules focusing on enclosed spaces.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}‘Gas measurement, a safe atmosphere’ (CBT0425) is the first of two modules concerning gas measurement in enclosed spaces and cargo tanks and is aimed primarily at operational level crew.

CBT0425 covers evaluation of the atmosphere in an enclosed space, itemising possible contaminant gases, assessing explosion and fire risks, and confirming that the enclosed space is fit for entry.

It also details terms related to exposure limits for airborne toxic substances and sets out the principles for the inerting and gas-freeing of enclosed spaces.

A complementary module called ‘Gas measurement, measuring instruments’ (CBT 0426) also covers gas measurement in enclosed spaces and cargo tanks, but focuses on the use and maintenance of the portable instruments that check atmospheres.

"Entry into enclosed spaces is a high priority safety issue and the right training is crucial," said Bent Christoffersen, Seagull Maritime director training content.

"These modules update an earlier Seagull CBT, reflecting new SOLAS rules that came into effect in 2015, while we have also taken the opportunity to enhance user-friendliness. Without being alarmist, these type of training modules can save lives.”

Other new CBT modules from Seagull Maritime also address safety-critical operations.

The new module ‘Use of Liferafts’ (CBT 0298) reinforces the knowledge gained by support level crew that have attended an STCW personal survival course, for example.

Meanwhile, ‘Bulk carriers unloading’ (CBT 0349) focuses on procedures for safe unloading of bulk carriers. Seagull Maritime released six new bulker titles in 2014, and CBT 0349 is the first of four covering bulk carriers planned for release this year.{/mprestriction}
