This course teaches you how to identify the hazards associated with benzene, where hazardous levels of benzene may occur, and how to prevent benzene from reaching hazardous levels.

Under Coast Guard regulation 46 CFR 151 Subchapter O, cargo with benzene requires special handling such as the use of vapor control procedures. Regular inspection and maintenance of the controls is required, and personal protective equipment (PPE) should be worn. Viewers learn about Permissible Exposure Levels (PEL) for benzene, which include Time Weighted Average Exposure Limit and Short-Term Exposure Limit (STEL). This course also teaches what to do if you or a coworker has been exposed to benzene.
