Transferring Hazardous Materials

Among the other duties MSTs shoulder is their responsibility to monitor the transfer of fuel, explosives and other hazardous material from ship to shore or vice versa. “By monitoring fuel transfers and periodically checking transfer protocols and procedures, we reduce the probability of an incident considerably,” explains Gray.

MSTs help process the permits required to transport explosives from a vessel to a port facility or vice-versa, and also oversee the loading and unloading of those explosives. “We also work with our Waterways personnel to authorize the launching of fireworks from a barge,” adds Lang, “and, although it’s not necessarily related to explosives, we’re also involved with granting permits for things like regattas and races on the water.”
