MITAGS Goes Green

Friday, May 03, 2002
Glen Paine, Executive Director, Maritime Institute of Technology & Graduate Studies (MITAGS) and Pacific Maritime Institute (PMI), Seattle, Washington announced that MITAGS has designed courses for ship crews on environmental standards, care, and protection. Today, ship operators are coming under intense scrutiny for their role in environmental pollution. These operational mishaps can lead to substantial government fines and costly environmental litigation. Both can be expensive and onerous to ship operating companies financial and operational well being. MITAGS offers to provide this course, the length of which can be customized to meet organizational requirements, on its ship or at their facilities. Attendees will be instructed on all pertinent International, Flag State, Federal and State regulatory requirements; consequences of non-compliance (Criminal and Civil Liability and Public Relations); and guidelines pertinent to an organization’s specific policies. Subject areas will include Marine Oil Pollution, Sewage Disposal, Garbage and Waste Management, Hazardous Materials, Air Emissions and Non-indigenous Species.

The regulatory burden on shipboard staff are substantial and even perceived violations can detain ships and crews. Ship crews must be trained to avoid these potential disasters and be taught that any form of pollution has grave consequences. MITAGS believes that the proactive approach for ensuring you vessel’s safe passage through the onerous waters of governmental compliance and environmental requirements is essential. The MITAGS’ “Green Courses” are cost efficient and effective.
