U.S. Navy Salvage Safety Manual
255 pages, 3-ring binder
Description: This manual, for use by the marine salvage community, presents safety regulations, instructions, guidelines, and philosophies pertaining to accident prevention, salvage seamanship, hazardous materials, salvage planning and salvage machinery. This safety manual represents a departure from previous salvage safety manuals as earlier editions addressed only the chemical and hazardous materials a salvor might encounter. In this edition, a broader area of salvage safety has been addressed. Salvage safety encompasses broad, yet definitive subject matters. Matters such as deck seamanship, beach gear, rigging, static and dynamic lifts, and basic rigging purchases are addressed as well as commonly encountered issues such as gas, chemical, fuel and hazardous materials.
