Bridging Safety Between Land and Sea

The marine work environment can involve potential Safety and Health hazards for untrained maritime workers. The purpose of this training is to provide information that will help maritime workers understand the hazards associated with daily tasks and therefore work safely. The ultimate goal is to provide maritime workers with important information so at the end of each day everyone can return home to enjoy a healthy, happy and safe life. The duration of the MISTA course will be 4 hours combined with a 50 question multiple choice test. Trainees must present a valid State or Federal ID at the training facility prior to participation in the program. As MISTA expands the program regionally and nationally, we are interested in partnering with host employers interested in requiring MISTA training as an entry requirement and community training centers that are interested in delivering the program.
