Marine Safety

In order to provide resources and knowledge to those working or impacted by marine forest operations, MFSAG (Marine Forest Safety Advisory Group), was created.  Industry can consider, use and tailor to their unique communities and audiences to help inform and educate industry and political leaders on marine forest safety initiatives.  The goal is to develop and improve resources so that industry is easily able to obtain, and effectively train and incorporate the knowledge, skills, and safety culture behaviors required in marine forest operations to reduce the risk of incidents.
