Marina Recreation Association plans inspection-prep seminars

The Marina Recreation Association is holding a series of seminars in California to educate marina owners.

The Marina Recreation Association is holding a series of seminars in California to educate marina owners about an increase in federal OSHA enforcement in light of a spike in marina and boatyard injury rates.

Marina safety specialist Robert Smith, of MYMIC Training Technologies, will speak at the four-seminar series about stepped-up enforcement by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Recently, injury rates for the marina and boatyard industry have risen sharply, according to the statement announcing the series. The association said OSHA issued a directive that targets marinas and boatyards in parts of California and the agency could visit these facilities very soon.

The seminars, all held from 9 a.m. to noon, will focus on marinas preparing themselves for inspections.

The seminar schedule is:

• San Diego — June 2 at the Island Palms Hotel & Marina

• Isleton (Delta) — June 4 at Willow Berm Marina

• San Pedro — June 3 at California Yacht Marina-Cabrillo Marina

• Richmond — June 5 at Marina Bay Yacht Harbor
