What are the Hazards of Boat and Ship Building?
The boat and ship building and repairing industry consists of establishments primarily engaged in building and repairing ships, barges, and lighters, whether self-propelled or towed by other craft.
This industry also includes the conversion and alteration of ships and the manufacture of off-shore oil and gas well drilling and production platforms (whether or not self-propelled).
The boat building and repair industry consists of establishments primarily engaged in the building and repairing of craft such as fiberglass boats, motor boats, kayaks, canoes, houseboats, and dinghies.
Ship and boat building and repair activities comprise some of the most hazardous work place operations. Hazards include exposure to toxic substances, hazardous atmospheres, electrocution, falls, fires, and explosions.
